SCC gets much-needed volleyball win

ALAMEDA — With the end of the regular season rapidly approaching and a potential playoff spot on the line, the Solano Community College volleyball team needs every win it can get.

The Falcons made quick work of host College of Alameda for a 3-0 Bay Valley Conference victory Wednesday, winning by 25-19, 25-11, 25-6.

“I was nervous going into the game,” said Solano coach Darla Williams. “They have improved tremendously in the second half, pushing Napa to five (sets) and Yuba to four.”

Alameda provided no such challenge for Solano, however, and the Falcons (18-8 12-3 BVC) put up some impressive serving numbers.

Natalie Perry went 20 for 20 at the line with four aces, six kills and a team-high 19 digs. Emily Skinner was 18 for 18 serving with four aces and six kills.

Pilar Washington added five kills and four blocks, while Janelle Williams had five kills and two blocks. Hope Grace also had five kills and two blocks, and Lainey Brown added 11 digs.

Provided the Falcons win their regular-season finale at home Friday night against Laney College, it will be up to first-place Yuba to finish off Napa Valley and help Solano claim second place and a playoff spot with the tiebreaker over Napa.

VCS falls in semistro Victory Christian

ELVERTA — The Vacaville Christian High dug itself a three-goal deficit and couldn’t climb out in seeing its season end with a 3-1 loss to Victory Christian in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division VII semifinals at the Cherry Island Soccer Complex on Wednesday.

Victory Christian got on the board in the fifth minute and added a second goal minutes into the second half.

The Vikings upped their lead to 3-0 at the 21-minute mark before the Falcons’ Stephen Gloudeman, who started the game in goal, took a throw-in from Andrew Bliek and headed it in with 12 minutes remaining.

Vacaville Christian, which ended the season at 9-8-2, had several late chances to score, but couldn’t finish.

The Falcons got solid play up front from forwards Jeremy Rico and Matt Burnett as well as from center midfielders and co-captains  Bliek and Brent Williams.

Correction

Dion Williams of the Vanden High football team was omitted from a story on all-Solano County Athletic Conference selections in Wednesday’s Daily Republic. The junior receiver received honorable mention.
