FRC volleyball falls to Fresno 3-1


The Feather River College volleyball team fell to Fresno City College in the second round of the state playoffs Saturday 3-1 (14-25, 25-21, 20-25, 25-27) at Fresno.

FRC ends its season with an overall record of 17-9. Statistically, the Golden Eagles finished third in the state in kills per set with 13.29 and led in conference play with 13.85.

FRC will return freshman standout Middle Back Cyan Blackdeer but will lose sophomore outside hitter Morgan Hughes who led the team in kills this season with a total of 370.

Libero Katie McKay is set to return for her sophomore season next year. McKay finished a stellar first year at FRC, leading the team in digs with 391. Also returning next year for FRC is setter Precious Helekahi, who led the team in assists with 874.

Feather River will also be losing Kim Austin and Summer Vercruyssen who finished the season with 200 kills and 115 kills respectively.

Though the Golden Eagles will lose some power hitters, next year’s team will feature a very mature team, expecting 10 players to return as sophomores.
