The Pilot volleyball team improved their record to 7-2 this weekend with a 3-match sweep of the New Mexico State tournament. This included a 3-0 victory over previously undefeated New Mexico State in a match that included 12 Pilot aces.

Watched the Portland State game the other night... The coach seemed more focused on questioning the referees than coaching the team...

Also, any idea why Shayla wasn't in the match?

The Pilots won a nail-biter at the Chiles Center tonight against Pacific. First two matches went to 23-23 then 25-23, with the Pilots winning the first and the Tigers winning the second. Pilots would have been down 0-2, except that the Tigers gifted them lots of service-error points in the first set.

Pilots won the third set handily--and the Tigers returned the favor in the fourth. In the fifth set, the Pilots got down (9-6, if I recall) but then Emma Scanlan rattled off 5 or 6 service winners, and the Pilots hung on for a 15-13 win.

One of the Pilots' weaknesses in recent years has been blocking, and they were true to form in that regard in the first two sets, being out-blocked noticeably. In the last three sets, however, they managed quite a few blocks, so that by the end of the match, the teams were nearly even in this regard.

Liz Reich contributed lots of kills, and freshman Jayde Harris had a good match with a solid serving performance and a number of kills. Claire Forrest had some nice kills at opportune times.

Overall, play from both teams was on the sloppy side, with more than the usual number of unforced errors. The match could easily have gone either way, but this time it was in our favor.

The team needs to improve a lot to get any consideration for a post-season tournament, like the NIVC last year. I haven't seen improvement and I fear simply going with the status quo in all areas is not a recipe for improvement. Other teams see films and are making adjustments and Portland must do the same.
