Women's Soccer has officially started their inaugural season
On Friday, Cerro Coso Women's Soccer traveled to LA Valley College to play their first game. Although the girls lost their season opener to a tough LA valley team the experience was phenomenal and the girls cannot be more excited for what is to come. The girls played a LA valley team with a full squad and found that the late start for our team contributed to the "growing pains" that we faced in playing a team with a full roster. The girls started the game well in keeping LA valley to 4 goals up until the 70th minute but fatigue become an issue and that score increased over the final few minutes. Either way, Coach Dickson is thrilled about the upcoming season and he thinks the girls will have "a season to remember." Good Luck girls! Women's Soccer travels to College of the Sequoias this weekend for the Visalia Tournament.
Women's Volleyball goes 3-0 over to the weekend.
Women's Volleyball had a great tournament over the weekend and went 3-0 in their matches. In their first match the girls defeated Imperial Valley 3-0 (27-25, 25-21, 25-11) and looked fantastic in their opening match getting better each set and keeping the unforced errors to a minimum. Ashley Sherrick let the team with 15 kills with Nora Sellberg following up with 12. Adrianna Volentine led the team in digs with 23 and Ashley Sherrick had 14.
In their second match they defeated Cuyamaca 3-1 (24-26, 25-21, 25-21, 25-15) coming back strong after close loss in their first game. Ashley led the team with 18 kills, Laura Metcalf had 9, Nora Sellberg had 8, and Jessica lange had 6. The team's serve/receive passing looked stellar throughout the day and Ashley, Adrianna, and Nora led the team in that category. Adrianna led the team with 24 digs, Ashley had 18, and Candace Perez and Ashley Sherrick each added 7 digs to the team's total.
In their third match the ladies defeated the Imperial Valley Alumni team in 4 sets (20-25, 25-23, 29-27, 25-19) and Laura, from the outside hitter position, led the team with 16 kills, Jessica followed with 10, and Morgan fuller had 9. Morgan also had 6 serving aces and Candace Perez added 2. As a team the girl's had 10 stuff blocks and Jessica Lange led the team with 4 solos and Melissa followed with 2. Laura Metcalf, Roslyn Taliaferro, and Candace Perez led the team in digs 18 ,9, and 7 respectively.
As a whole the women had a great weekend! As coach Young said; "Our team's defense was excellent, our service receiving was much improved, and the passing throughout the day only improved. Defense creates offense, and we will only play as good as we pass. So the girls have been working hard every day in practice to pass and dig effectively. What impressed me the most was one when the girl's faced adversity in their first sets they came back strong and only got better!"
Women's Volleyball Update
Our Women's Volleyball team had their season opener at home this weekend and it was a resounding success. The lady coyotes played against two tough teams, Allan Hancock and Mt. San Jacinto, and went 1-1 over the weekend. In their first match against Allan Hancock the ladies came out victorious with an extremely strong performance against a good team. For the first game of the season we were thrilled to see such a fantastic debut. In the second game the ladies fell just short in a close match against a difficult Mt. San Jacinto team. Although the second game came with a loss the positive outlook that we now have for the season far out shadows the one loss.
The ladies looked great and they hope to take that momentum into our next home game this Friday 9/6 at Cerro Coso vs. Southwestern at 6pm. Come out and support the lady Coyotes in their final home game for the month of September!

Cerro Coso welcomes Soccer Coach Kris Dickson!
Cerro Coso Community College is thrilled to launch the new Women's Soccer Program this fall with local Coach Kris Dickson.
Pre-season training will begin on July 8th and we are still looking for additional players. Coach Dickson is looking for a few full-time female students with a desire to play college soccer, to compete all over the state, and to be part of a new college athletics program.
Women's Soccer was added to the growing line-up of the college's intercollegiate sports teams in response to a Survey of Athletic Interests conducted each year in compliance with Title IX regulations. According to the survey, the number one sport supported by state and local athletes was volleyball followed closely by soccer. In the Fall of 2012 the College added Women's Volleyball to its lineup and is adding Women's Soccer in the Fall of 2013 with aspirations to add even more publicly supported programs in the coming years.
Athletic programs and the Physical Education Department are integral parts of the overall educational experience at Cerro Coso Community College. Adding Women's Soccer will increase the number of student athletes on campus and give all students and community members increasing opportunities to be a part of a college atmosphere that encourages school spirit and participation in activities inside and outside the classroom.
Female students who take their academics seriously, have a desire to play college sports, and are disciplined enough to be part of the college athletics program, can secure their spot on the team today.
Those who are interested in being among the first to play on the inaugural women's soccer team at Cerro Coso are encouraged to contact Athletic Director John Mercer at (760) 384-6353 for details.
