The Glendale women’s volleyball team has definitely made some changes to improve themselves this season.

This year, the Lady Vaqs are off to a great start with a record of 8-7 overall and 4-1 in the Western State Conference. They have won six out of their last seven games.
The Lady Vaqs are currently in third place in conference, following undefeated Bakersfield and College of the Canyons.

The Vaqs, along with the Renegades and the Cougars, all have winning records. The only loss the Lady Vaqs had was against Canyons, in which they lost 3-0.

Last week, the Lady Vaqs faced Citrus College at home, where the girls played five exhilarating games.

Citrus took the first set with a 25-18 win. In the second set, Citrus won again 25-14. The turnaround came when Glendale overpowered the Owls in a 27-25 win. They carried the momentum into the fourth set and won 25-23. Then, the Lady Vaqs took it all and won 15-11.

Jessica Alvarez was the kills leader with 15 kills and six digs. Alyssa Rosca had 42 assists. Solo blocks leaders were Roxie Domines, with five, and Ashleigh Diller with four.
