COD Women’s Volleyball sweeps away the Brahmas for first time, 3-0

COD (7-7) moved back to even on the season, knocking off an LA Pierce Brahmas (1-4) team for the first time in program history in a sweep, 3-0 (25-23, 25-16, 25-14).

The Roadrunners made the 150 mile trip out to Woodland Hills to make history. While Pierce is a shell of their former glory days, days that saw them win three consecutive CCCAA state titles from 2010 to 2012, Desert will have momentum heading into their new Conference, the Inland Empire Athletic Conference (IEAC) beginning with a home match on October 16th at 5 p.m.

Freshman setter Judy Figueroa (Indio Shadow Hills) led the team with 22 assists, had eight digs and a solo block and freshman libero Dakota Hansen (Myrtle Beach, SC) led the team with four service aces and led the team with eleven digs.

Freshman setter Kalin Olsen (Palm Desert H.S.) had twelve assists and freshman defensive specialist Alyssa Johnson (Rancho Mirage H.S.) had two service aces.

Freshman outside hitter Emillie Griffith (Yucca Valley H.S.) had eight kills and sophomore middle blocker Aaliyah Muhammad (Los Angeles Westchester) led the team with 13 kills.

Sophomore right side Kendal Campbell-Faynor (White Rock (BC) Semiahoo Secondary) had two service aces and eight digs and freshman outside hitter Kate Thiem (Indio Shadow Hills) had ten kills.
