The Corcoran High varsity volleyball team beat Delano High School last week in five games. CHS started off down two games losing 19-25 and 21-25. They rallied to come from behind and win the next three games 25-20, 25-18 and 15-13.

“We were up 14-13 in game five and that’s when our defense took over,” said Coach Anton Glenn.

Jullisa Lopez crushed Delano’s hopes on a game ending block during the final rally. From the serve line the team had several players step up and they included Isabelle Salcedo, Alexis Lerma and Alexis Luna, giving Corcoran five plus consecutive serves each.

“Our dominance at the net is what shifted momentum for us. We had big blocks from Aly Fernandez and Jullisa Lopez at key times during play. We got kills from Lopez, Sabrina Campos, Jailen Ramirez, Lovechia Jones and Haley Zavala. Setter Desiree Palomo was the glue that held us together. Her leadership on the court, spreading the ball around and getting the entire offense involved is what the team needed against the Tigers.”

The junior varsity team also posted a big win over the Tigers last week. And according to Coach Renee Glenn most of the team got playing time.

“In game one I played girls that are not used to playing together and it was amazing. Krystal Gonzalez served 10 straight with six aces. And with the help of Ashley Salas at the net and new setter Julissa Acevedo we were able to pull off a big win,” Glenn said.

In game two, all the regulars were back on the court and they did not disappoint keeping another win at home.

Corcoran’s varsity team is competing in the Farmersville Tournament this week while both the frosh and JV teams will head to Lemoore on Saturday.
