Rocklin, Calif. – Life Pacific Volleyball opened up their season by going 2-2 at the Jessup Volleyball Warrior Invitational. LPC showed great perseverance as they pushed through the gauntlet of four games in only two days.
After finishing the first day 1-1, the Warriors opened up the second day against Simpson University Red Hawks (Redding, Calif.). LPC was able to dominate the game early by coming out to an 8-2 lead in the first set. However, multiple errors by LPC helped Simpson come back to take the lead 10-9.
Life Pacific bounced back and went on to control the rest of the match by winning all three sets to defeat the Red Hawks (25-18, 25-8, 25-18).
Following the victory against Simpson, LPC took on the home team and future GSAC conference opponent, William Jessup University.
The Warriors were able to make a statement early by winning a very close first set 25-23 that was never separated by more than two points. It was apparent that William Jessup would not be willing to go down easily against Life Pacific.
The second set began with five back and forth lead changes until William Jessup took the lead 8-9. The set continued to remain close, but Jessup never released their grasp on the lead as they won set number two 25-21.
Life Pacific began the third set with a 7-4 lead but was unable to hold the lead any longer as William Jessup came back to win the set by a score of 25-18.
Down 2-1, Life Pacific fought hard in the fourth set, but they were unable to capture the lead in what proved to be the final set. William Jessup won the final set 25-17 which sealed the victory and protected their home court.
Despite falling short against the tournament hosts, LPC did not hang their heads as they packed up to head back home to San Dimas. This tournament served as a building block which will help the Warriors as they prepare for two upcoming GSAC matches against Hope International University (8/22) and San Diego Christian College (8/29).
Coach Douglas on LPC's Performance:
"The coaching staff is extremely excited about the upcoming season after how hard we played in this tournament. We have 3 athletes playing new positions and 4 freshmen starting so we will just keep getting better. The girls are working very hard and they showed a lot of heart during the whole tournament and we had multiple coaches come up to us and tell us how impressed they are with our team's effort."
