Volleyball team comes back strong

By Elliot Heis

Cal Poly’s volleyball team lost 3-0 against Cal State San
Bernardino and Chico State last week before defeating Cal State
Stanislaus 3-1 Saturday.

“After losing four matches in a row it’s good to get a win
finally,” senior setter Jasmine Davis said.

Cal Poly’s record now stands at 9-14 with a CCAA record of
6-10.

The Broncos took the first two games against the Cal State
Stanislaus Warriors 25-19 and 25-17 taking all the momentum into
the break. The Warriors fought back to take the third game 25-23 as
the Broncos continue to struggle in the third game of each
match.

“We didn’t panic after we lost game three tonight, Broncos’ head
coach Rosie Wegrich said. “We remained calm and poised in game
four.”

Cal Poly sealed the win in the fourth game with a decisive 25-15
win.

The win was a morale boost for the Broncos, who had not won a
game in four matches. The Broncos’ victory marked the 14th straight
over the Warriors.

“Trying to keep everyone inspired has been more challenging,”
Wegrich said. “We practiced today at three o’clock and I’m really
happy.”

The Broncos won thanks to a tenacious defense mixed with some
clever offensive work headed up by Davis, who racked up 37 assists
to accompany her defensive effort with six digs and six block
assists.

“We go over certain plays in practice as well as different
situations, but sometimes I get a little creative,” Davis said.

With a large number of freshmen on the young squad, Cal Poly has
had a good amount of success against a very experienced conference,
while growing into a stronger team.

“We’ve built so much,” Davis said. “The beginning of the season
was a little bit of a struggle but right now we’re building and I
think by the end of the season we’re going to be a force to be
reckoned with.”

Wegrich’s lineup has featured more time for the freshmen as the
season has progressed.

“Kelly Bonja and Camille Bulot are getting the system
understood,” Wegrich said. “There were very few problems in the
seams and I’m feeling good about those two.”

The Broncos head out Friday for their last road trip of the
season, beginning in Humboldt State. They return home Nov. 13 to
face the Cal State Monterey Bay Otters.
