“Tthe first two games we had a lot of uncharacteristic errors we haven’t seen all year,” Vacaville Christian coach Steve Jacobs said. “That put us down two games. The third game we played like our normal team and did really well.”
Alicia Borges had 23 assists and seven kills for the Falcons, while Casi Diaz had 14 kills, Haley Kenyon nine kills and six blocks and Lauren Gottschall six kills.
“I’m just blessed to have such a great team, great attitude, great spirt,” Jacobs said. “We’ve got a good foundation for the future.”

“I’m quite happy,” Jacobs said. “We had a great season. I would’ve liked to have won, but that’s OK.”
