The Vance-Granville Community College women’s volleyball team recently closed out the 2014 season.


In an Oct. 9 match at Central Carolina Community College, the Vanguards lost, three sets to none. Kara Reese of Henderson led the Vanguards in kills (four) and digs (14), while also making three blocks and seven points. VGCC’s Rachel Thomas of Louisburg contributed three kills, eight digs, three blocks and six points. Caitlyn Robins of Creedmoor was the leader in assists (seven), and put up two kills, five digs and one block.


A trip to Davidson County Community College on Oct. 16 also resulted in a three-set loss for VGCC. Reese again had the most kills and digs, with six apiece, and she contributed one block and seven points. Thomas was not far behind, with five kills, five digs and five points. Robins posted two kills, one service ace, three digs and two blocks.


The season ended with a double-header on the road at Rockingham Community College on Oct. 18. In the first match, the Eagles of RCC won the first two sets, 25-11 and 25-18, but the Vanguards came back to dominate the third set, 25-11. The decisive fourth set was a close victory for RCC, 25-20. Reese was the leader in kills (15) and digs (10) again, and posted two service aces, eight blocks, and a whopping 25 points. Ymani Yancey of Oxford had the most service aces, with four, and she contributed three digs and four points. Robins and Thomas provided six digs apiece, while Robins made six kills and Thomas, three.


The second match of the day saw VGCC fall to RCC in three hard-fought sets (25-22, 25-22 and 25-10). Reese put up 14 kills, two service aces, six digs, four blocks and 20 points. Thomas had the most digs (seven), plus a kill and a block. Robins contributed two kills and two blocks.


“I really enjoyed my first season as VGCC women’s volleyball coach,” Coach Christopher Young (pictured above, talking to his players) reflected. “I had the pleasure to coach some amazing young women on and off the court. We built a great relationship, and the ladies worked very hard to make VGCC proud of them with their intense play throughout the year. I am looking forward to recruiting hard this off season and preparing our players to fight for a league championship next year.”
