Phoenix, Ariz. – Life Pacific College's Volleyball team didn't experience the success that they desired on their four game road trip to Arizona Christian University. The Warriors lost three games at the tournament, but they were able to capture a momentous victory over in-state rival, University of Antelope Valley.
Coach Sean Douglas on the tournament:
"Our first match of the tournament against Benedictine from Kansas was a tough one. We lost in 3, each set 23-25. We had to sit a starter Jordin Bishop (FR/Chino Hills, CA) due to a leg injury and we were just a little off. Mariah Durant (SO/Orange, CA) led the way with 10 kills and hit an outstanding .421 We started playing better against perennial power house Embry-Riddle, but lost in 4. We scored in the 20's in each set we lost, but we were unable to put them away. Jordana Ramirez (FR/Chino, CA) helped the defense with a match high of 7 assist blocks. Mariah Durant had a match high 16 kills, while Jordin Bishop came off the bench from injury with 14 kills and 11 digs for a double double. Sydney Culpepper (FR/Rancho Cucamonga, CA) had a double double as well with 14 kills and 14 digs. This was the best offensive production for us this year and with 4 freshman starting, we get better every match."
"Day two saw us play a local rival, University of Antelope Valley. After winning the first set, starting setter and captain, Priscilla Mercado (JR/Riverside, CA) went down with an ankle injury. With our gutsiest performance of the year, Freshman Jordin Bishop switched positions to run the offense. This was something that she'd never done in her entire volleyball career. The whole team stepped up around her and won the match in 5. That's basically equivalent to a running back who's taken a few snaps in the last month being thrown in to play quarterback. Sydney Culpepper led the way with 17 kills and 25 digs. Maria Pinedo (FR/Pomona, CA) solidified the middle with her first double digit kills match with 10 kills. The defense led the way as we had a season high of 102 digs for the match. The last match of the tournament posed a little too much as we missed starting setter Priscilla Mercado who was out due to injury. Jordin Bishop did a great job though with a match high 48 assists. Leticia Burlet (JR/Rio de Janeiro) and Sydney Culpepper led with 18 kills, but Arizona Christian just had a little too much fire power. I'm extremely pleased with our production this tournament."
"We have fallen just short in the matches that we have lost and the difference is our lack of experience. We tend to give our opposition too many free points in crunch time with unforced errors but that comes along with a young team. I'm most excited how we battled as a group and rallied around Jordin after Priscilla went down with her ankle injury. The future is very bright for Warriors volleyball."
