Volleyball Sweeps #3 El Camino

Bakersfield, CA – The Bakersfield College women's volleyball team took on a #3 ranked El Camino College team Friday night in the Gil Bishop Sports Center and came away with a huge 3-0 sweep to improve to 14-1 on the season.

Both teams went back and forth early in the first set until BC took control late and won, 25-23. The second set was much of the same as both sides battled point to point. Again however, the Renegades took control late and won 25-22. The third and final set featured much of the same with BC controlling the lead throughout and winning 25-21 to claim the victory.

Leading the way for BC was Lanie Camarillo with 20 kills and Penelope Zepeda with 13. Jessica Merante added 24 digs on the evening.

"All week we were just preparing for this match in particular," commented Camarillo after the match, "We kept composure. We kept a mentally strong mindset the whole week and we pulled through with the win."

Coach Carl Ferreria commented, "That was a great win for BC volleyball. We executed how we needed to execute. We knew it was a big match and we just focused on two things – efficiency and mental toughness and our players did a phenomenal job."

Next up, the Renegades stay at home to face West LA College on Wednesday, Oct. 10th at 6pm.
