The Pima Community College volleyball team had a tough time at the Scottsdale Classic tournament.
“It was an interesting trip,” sophomore Alexis Ammerman said. “We played well but we played some really good teams.”
The Aztecs dropped all three matches on Sept. 12. They lost in a close opening match to College of Southern Idaho, then lost in three sets to host Scottsdale Community College and to Utah State University.
Pima lost again on Sept. 13 against Central Wyoming College in four hard-fought sets. In the final match of the tournament, the Aztecs defeated Victoria College (Texas) in three sets.
Pima tallied a conference win on Sept. 6 against Mesa Community College. The Aztecs won two sets before dropping the third, but took control in the fourth set.
Sophomore Liz Mata contributed 38 assists and two aces. Sophomore Kaysee Pilgrim finished the game with 14 kills and four blocks, while Ammerman had six blocks.
On Sept. 5, the Aztecs hit the road to take on Glendale Community College but could not come away with the win. The Aztecs won the first set but dropped the next three, allowing Glendale to remain undefeated for the season.
On Sept. 3, Pima won a five-match set on the road against Phoenix College during a back-and-forth contest.
