LTCC next up for win at the net

Lake Tahoe Community College has yet to win a volleyball match this fall, but the Kokanee are taking the small steps necessary to do so.

After being swept in three games by Shasta on Friday, the Kokanee extended College of the Siskiyous to four games, 11-15, 7-15, 15-12, 3-15 on Saturday in South Lake Tahoe.

“They were so happy to beat Siskiyous that they let down (in the fourth game). They were exhausted,” said LTCC coach Cheryl Vanos-Embry.

Just like last season we’re starting to peak coming down to the end of the season. But we only have (three) matches left. That’s kind of tough, but they’re improving so much.”

Jen Plummer and Michelle Wolsky starred in both matches for LTCC. Plummer had 13 kills, nine digs and four ace serves against Siskiyous and six kills, seven digs and two blocks in a 10-15, 4-15, 12-15 loss to Shasta. Wolsky delivered 10 kills, five digs and three aces against Siskiyous and six digs, three kills and two aces against Shasta.

Defensively, LTCC was given a lift by Jenny Sweet. Sweet had 15 digs in the Siskiyous match and 10 vs. Shasta.

LTCC, 0-9, resumes play Nov. 11 at Feather River.

David Rechiel placed second overall as the Lake Tahoe Community College cross-country team finished second to Butte on Saturday in Oroville, Calif.

Reichel’s time was 23 minutes, 26 seconds. Racing with a complete team, LTCC’s other results were Sky Patridge, sixth, 25:25; Michael Pratt, 26:23; Gavin Fuhrman, 27:01; and Eddie Sheppard, 27:17.

Meanwhile, Veronica Millen and Rebecca Willmett finished sixth and seventh, respectively with their times of 28:03 and 28:51.

LTCC will compete in the Golden Valley Championships on Friday in Eureka.
