SBCC volleyball team continues winning streak
The Santa Barbara City College women’s volleyball team won its eighth match in a row Wednesday, defeating Ventura in three sets at the SBCC Sports Pavillion.
Game scores were 26-24, 25-21 and 25-21.
The Vaqueros, who are ranked No. 7 in the state, are now 13-2 overall and 2-0 for the Western State Conference.
“I’m extremely proud of how we played against a solid Ventura team that is ranked 17th in the state,” City College head coach Kat Niksto said in a news release. “Our middles, Paige Rudi and Karoline Ruiz, were once again dominant, each with a pair of blocks and eight and 10 kills, respectively.”
Freshman hitter Bella Johnson led all players with 11 kills. Lily Krongold and Caroline McCarty made 5 and 4 kills, respectively.
Libero Jacelin Mckie went for more 20 digs for the fourth time this year, posting a match high of 23. She now has 255 for the year — the third highest number in the Western State Conference.
Setter Emma Crabbe recorded her team-leading seventh double-double of the season with 38 assists and 15 digs.
The Vaqueros’ winning streak is its longest one since the team won 13 straight in 2017.
