The East Los Angeles College volleyball team ended the season strong by defeating Los Angeles Trade Tech College in three sets, 25-5, 25-12, 25-11.
Breanna Trujillo led the Huskies volleyball team to one last victory of the season on Nov. 18.
April Melgar, lead outside hitter of LATTC, expressed her feelings “You guys are definitely a strong team. Breanna is a really good outside hitter, but she is a sophomore so we don’t have to worry about her next season” Melgar said.
She also expressed appreciation for the ELAC hospitality “You guys have a great coach and great program here. We definitely appreciate the welcomeness,” Melgar said.
Huskies closed this season with an overall record of 10-15 and 5-9 in the conference. ELAC took the victory on four home games out of six, and won four away games out of six.
They hold 25 matches this season with 10 kills per set, 18 percent hitting, 9 assists per set. ELAC averaged one block per set. Service aces per set was 1 and 12 digs per set.
“I am proud that they finished the season with a win. I think it is probably an inner joy. They knew they had to finish strong despite our ups and downs through the season, so this leaves an ever-indelible mark in their minds that we finished doing what we were supposed to do,” ELAC head coach Elliot Walker said.
Despite being out of the playoffs, coach Walker expressed how proud he is of the team and what they have accomplished. He gives them one more piece of advice and encouragement “Never stop sezing an opportunity, because opportunities only come once, for the most part, and remember that they always have to continue to work for them, they have to continue to work,” Elliot said.
