Cerritos College loses again at home to Mt. San Antonio College in five sets, but Mt. SAC sweeps season series.

Back on Wednesday, Oct. 7, the Cerritos College women’s volleyball team traveled to Mt. San Antonio College and got swept.

Flash forward to Friday, Oct. 30, 23 days later, the Falcons faced Mt. San Antonio College Mounties again, this time on the home court, and it took a full five sets to decide the match, but the Mounties prevailed again.

Despite 16 kills from Monica Vega along with 19 digs from Nicole Spigner and 49 assists from Natalie Caravantes, Cerritos failed to get revenge for the straight set loss up at Mt. SAC earlier in the season as the Falcons fell to the Mounties in five sets at the Aviary before 125 people.

The Falcons lost the first set 26-24 before taking the next two sets 25-22 and 25-23 only to lose the final two sets 25-21 and 15-10.

“[Mt. SAC] was more motivated than we were,” Vega said. “My game, however, was good. On my kills, I just wanted to find the blockers’ hands and hit it off their fingertips.”

Defensive specialist and outside hitter, Rocio Rojo-Perez, who led the Falcons with three service aces, said, “[Mt. SAC] wanted this game more than we did. When I was serving however, I just wanted to get the ball to the areas that Coach [Velazquez-Ortega] wanted me to get it to. Now we just have to focus on the next game.”

“We had a lot of fight, but at the same time a lot of service errors,” head coach Teresa Velazquez-Ortega said. “In the end, however, [Mt. SAC] played better than we did while we stopped playing our game.”

The loss drops Cerritos back to 13-9 overall and 6-3 in South Coast Conference action.

The Falcons will be back in action on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at Los Angeles Harbor College at 6 p.m.

The next game at the Aviary will be on Friday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. against Pasadena City College.
