The women’s volleyball team picked up their second straight win this week against Cal Lutheran University JV.
The Brahmas beat the Regals in straight sets (26-24, 26-24 and 25-22).
Pierce had 31 kills from 107 attacks with 24 assists and a .224 hitting percentage.
Assistant coach Carrie Wright said her players showed great tenacity and focus.
“We did an excellent job fighting and staying mentally tough,” Wright said.
The Brahmas traded the lead with the Regals during all three sets, but they were able to overcome mistakes quickly.
Outside hitter Brooke Romano said that she was proud of how the team worked together.
Wright said she hopes to carry this energy into today’s games.
“We’re finding our rhythm with our hitters and our defense is nice,” Wright said.
Cal Lutheran coach Bradley Freyder said Pierce forced them out of their system frequently.
“Pierce’s offense was phenomenal,” Freyder said. “Our defense learned a lot in terms of adjusting and had to make different plays based on what we saw.”
While the Brahmas were able to shut out the Regals, they made five service errors and seven hit errors.
Romano said that the team must work on preventing mistakes to prepare for today’s tournament.
“We need to work on serving errors and not giving away free points,” Romano said. “I feel like that was our biggest struggle. Letting balls drop and not being aggressive.”
The Brahmas will travel to Mission College to participate in a doubleheader at the LA Mission Quad.
They will face off against the Victor Valley College Rams at 12 p.m. and the Southwestern College Jaguars at 3 p.m.
