The Umpqua Community College women’s volleyball team got a comeback victory over Clackamas Saturday, winning in five sets in the Northwest Athletic Conference southern region match. Set scores were 25-14, 22-25, 18-25, 26-24, 15-9. The Riverhawks (17-13, 3-6) won the first set easily but then fell behind 2-1 after three sets. They rallied to win the fourth and fifth sets for the win. UCC coach Lacy Pinard said the key to the win was spreading the attack between multiple people. "Balancing our hitting options to all our offense not just one or two athletes," Pinard said. "Keep serving pressured balls and communicating with purpose." Kaitlen Hass had 14 kills, five service aces and 28 digs for the Riverhawks. McKenna Wilson had 10 kills and 18 digs while Megan Davis had 20 assists and 18 digs. Morgan Johnson had 10 kills and Johanna Pope had nine kills. Shayla Limatoc had 31 digs and five assists while Katelyn Crawford added 26 assists for UCC. “We started the second round of league play and the RiverHawks are focusing on one game at a time recovery,” Pinard said. “Last night was a good example of this goal. Many of the athletes had on and off moments, mostly in 2nd & 3rd sets but rallied and recovered.” The Riverhawks moved up to sixth place in the southern region over Clackamas (10-19, 2-7). UCC has seven league matches remaining. The Riverhawks play at Linn-Benton (8-2) next Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Then they play at Mt. Hood (5-6) next Saturday at 2 p.m. Photo of Kaitlen Hass going up for a kill.
