Women's volleyball takes San Diego City College Tournament championship

The women's volleyball team cooking up a meal for
residents of Bannister House at University of California,
San Diego.
This past weekend, the women’s volleyball team participated in the San Diego City College Tournament and made time for community service. The update below is from coach Vee Hiapo.

“On Thursday, the girls cooked a Hawaiian meal for the Bannister House, which houses families on the University of California, San Diego Medical Hospital at the Hillcrest location. We were able to meet many of the patients and their families. Most of them were heart and lung transplant patients. The girls shopped and cooked for 3 hours and were able to eat with the families. It was a wonderful and rewarding experience to serve the Bannister House and the families. The people were very appreciative.

Women's volleyball -- tournament champions.
On Friday, we played Cuyamaca College and defeated them in 3 sets. They were very gracious hosts and the coach was a former volleyball Olympian Karolyn Kirby.

On Saturday, we played in a 3-team pool with host San Diego City College and College of the Desert. It was a best of 5 series and we beat both of them in 3 sets (difficult to do in one day). We were seated first in a 6-team winner's bracket and Scottsdale was seated second. We waited for the number 3-6 teams to compete. Our first bracket play was Chaffey College of Rancho Cucamonga. The bracket play was only one set to 25 points. We beat them 25-15. Scottsdale beat Pima in their semi-final match 25-17. Our girls continued to play with a lot of aggressiveness and took a 7-1 lead before the coach called a time out. We lead the entire match and beat Scottsdale in the championship 25-22. Although the bracket games will not be recorded because it was only a 1-set match, we still won the championship and it feels really good.”
