The Ohlone College women’s volleyball team improved to 14-3 overall and 3-1 after defeating the West Valley College Vikings on Oct. 19 at Epler gymnasium in Fremont.

Brittany Creel and Jennifer Covey were overpowering for the Vikings who were not able to handle the vicious kills.

Selina Samorano and Elise Menicou were solid in the middle for Ohlone stuffing several attempts by West Valley. Ohlone dominated the first two sets and cruised to a 2-0 lead in the match when the
Vikings woke up.

The third set was tough for Ohlone but managed to pull it out in the end by a score of 30-28.

“We got a little too comfortable,” Menicou said. “You can’t play down to your competition we have to stay focused and do our jobs.”

Led by scrappy play from Olivia Downing, Lindsey Calabrese, Ohlone has put itself in the drivers seat for a playoff berth.

With less than a month to go before the post-season be- gins, coach Jeremy Penaflor is confident in his team.

“We just have to play our game and do things the right way,” Penaflor said. The momentum is building for the Lady Renegades who hope to carry it in to the playoffs come November with only a few regular season games remaining.
