GRANTS PASS – The Rogue Community College Ospreys Volleyball team was on the road Friday October 22nd taking on Clackamas Community College. The Ospreys were in a close battle to start the match and found a fight in each set but always settled in and cruised to a (26-24, 25-14, 25-19) win.
The Ospreys (16-7, 7-4) came out hot and pulled to steady five point lead over Clackamas (4-13, 2-9) only to allow them in close the gap late and fight to a 26-24 win. The second set was a slow start that ultimately saw the Ospreys pull ahead and stay there with a comfortable 25-14 win.
The third set was a back-and-forth battle. Each team would take a lead until the other charged ahead, until they got to 18’s. The Ospreys dug in and used solid defense to set up point after point and finish the set 25-19, winning the match 3-0.
Catherine Rostel led the offense with 11 Kills, Mackenzie Ososke had 7 as well as Toni Stevens. Jeanie Palsis had 19 Digs and Devin Ireland had 30 assists.
The Ospreys are on the road again tomorrow when they take on Chemeketa Community College (6-10, 3-7) at 2:00pm in Salem. The Ospreys sit in 3rd place in the NWAC South Region.
