BCC Wins Voileyball Quad Match Opener in Four Sets
September 14, 2012 - The Brevard Community College volleyball team got back on the winning track in the first match of Friday's quad event on the Titusville Campus, defeating St. Johns River State College 26-24, 25-15, 20-25 and 28-26.
BCC improved to 3-10 and plays Florida State College Jacksonville at 6 p.m. today.
South Florida State plays St. Johns River at 2 p.m. and South Florida State plays Florida State College Jacksonville at 4 p.m.
Admission to the matches is free. BCC's first home match of the season at the Melbourne Campus gym – where a new wood floor is being installed - is Oct. 9 against Miami Dade.
BCC rallied from six points down to win the first set, not taking its first lead until it went ahead 25-24. The Titans breezed through the second set for a 2-0 lead but St. Johns staged its own rally to win the third set. The fourth set featured 10 ties and five match points before BCC finally prevailed.
"Every win is important," said BCC head coach Herb Tokumoto whose team lost eight straight matches before Friday.
"For the girls this is a great morale booster. It also shows them they can compete and they truly, truly competed well today."
Freshman Sami Spring had 10 kills for BCC. Freshman Nia Frederick five blocks and freshman Sara Watkins 15 digs.
The victory resonated for freshmen Ashley Gonzalez and Taylor Gembecki.
"It was really important," said Gonzalez. "We haven't won a lot of games. We've been working towards it. We needed this one."
Gembecki had similar sentiments.
"Extremely important,"Gembecki said. "We needed the streak to end. I'm very happy."
Friday marked the second time BCC has defeated St. Johns River, the first coming in the season-opening tournament at Florida State College Jacksonville also in four sets.
