NU volleyball title hopes hit roadblock

The Union staff

Nevada Union’s bid for the Sierra Foothill League volleyball championship hit a roadblock in the form of the Granite Bay Grizzlies Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies (12-8 overall, 4-5 SFL) rallied back from a 2-1 game deficit for a 25-18, 19-25, 23-25, 25-14, 15-12 victory over the visiting Miners.

“We were playing (poorly) all night,” said NU coach Bob Rogers. “I honestly don’t know how we won any games. If we had played just somewhat below our normal effort, I thought we would have won.

“We just didn’t look like the same team.”

The loss dropped the Miners (23-8 overall) to 6-3 in SFL action. League-leading Del Oro headed into its match against Oakmont Wednesday with a 6-1 mark, while second-place Rocklin defeated Roseville Wednesday to move to 7-2.

“It’s still mathematically possible to do something, but not unless we get back to where we need to be,” Rogers said of NU’s league championship hopes. “We’ve got to put our nose to the grindstone, play one point at a time in the next four matches to see if we can’t get it back together.”

Coaches may submit game reports to The Union by phone at 477-4240, by e-mail at or by fax at 477-4292. Deadline for submission is 10 p.m.
