15 straight for Volleyball team

The Brahmas women’s volleyball team maintains their perfect record so far beating the Cuesta College Cougars in an away game on Friday.

Pierce won the match in three straight sets posting scores of 25-21, 25-13,  and 25-9.

The Brahmas came out a little flat but pulled through the first set according to head coach Nabil Mardini.

“We started out slow in the first game,” said Mardini. “But we made some ajustments on our end and then won the game very easily.”

The team had to cut down on their errors since the long ride to Cuesta, north of Santa Barbara, affected the performance according to team setter Janelle Futch.

“We might have been a little tired,” said Futch. “The van is always a time for us to bond though.”

Danetta Boykin led the team with 13 kills, Veronika Ban and Sakurako Fujii both had nine kills to help the Brahmas’ cause.

Co-captain Kathleen Wright contributed with 11 digs and four aces.

Sophomore Jasmine Levi rolled her ankle during the game and picked up an injury but will hopefully be back for next week’s match according to Mardini.

This win brings their season record to an impressive 15-0.

The Brahmas’  will play their first conference match today against Bakersfield at Pierce.

With a perfect record the team seemed confident they will come up with the goods despite the injury to Levi, according to Mardini.

“Even without our big in the middle,” said Mardini. “We will manage.”
