CYPRESS, CA – The 17th-ranked Cypress College women's volleyball team (6-3, 1-1 OEC) defended their home floor with a 3-0 sweep over Fullerton College (3-5, 0-2 OEC) on Wednesday night (25-21, 25-14, 25-21). It was the first sweep of the season for Chargers.
The Chargers jumped out to an early lead in the opening set, but Fullerton came storming back to take a 19-18 lead. A pair of Johnson kills and some tremendous defense at the net from Cypress helped them pull away late to take set one, 25-21.
Cypress dominated the second set throughout. After taking an early 11-3 lead, the Chargers ended the set with an 8-0 run, highlighted by a pair of kills and an ace from freshman Khamis Berneker.
The Hornets put up a tough fight in the third set, but it wasn't enough, as the Chargers completed the sweep and evened up their Orange Empire Conference record at 1-1.
Women's Volleyball will return to action on the road Friday at Orange Coast College. First serve is scheduled for 6:00 pm.
