GRANTS PASS – The Rogue Community College Ospreys Volleyball team was hosting its first home game of the Fall 2021 season Tuesday August 31st when they played College of the Redwoods in a non-conference match up. The Ospreys started slow but worked themselves into their flow by the third set to win 3-0 (25-20, 25-19, 25-15) and go 3-0 on the year.
The Ospreys (3-0) were hosting after 12 hour road trip the day before. They were slow to start in the first set as they struggled to put together a run. The varied attack proved too much for the Redwoods defense as they pulled ahead to win 25-20.
The Ospreys came out hot in the second set but let Redwoods creep back in before closing the door with a 25-19 win. The third set saw the Ospreys find their groove as they jumped out to a big lead and held strong to close out the match with a 25-15 win and 3-0 victory.
The Ospreys were led Catherine Rostel with 12 kills, Amanda Klotz 6 Kills, Tessa Frodge 6 Kills, Devin Ireland 20 Assists, and Jeanie Palsis with 13 digs.
The Ospreys head to Spokane WA this weekend for the Spokane Invitational Tournament. They will match up with other top seeds from across the NWAC. Region play begins Wednesday September 8th when they host Southwestern at 6:30pm at Court House Family Fitness in Medford.
