The Ridge Runners shined when it mattered most and for their efforts earned the Nevada County Adult Sports Association’s A League Volleyball Championship.

As the No. 3 seed in the eight-team playoff bracket, the Ridge Runners swept through the first round of the playoffs and won a hard-fought bout in the semifinals to reach the title match against No. 4 seed MCVC.

In the championship, the Ridge Runners took the first set, 25-15, but MCVC answered back with a 25-14 victory in the second set to send the match to a third and final set. The Ridge Runners were too much down the stretch and took the third set, 15-12.

The Ridge Runners are comprised of Jonathan Crouch, Aila Hale-Coats, Dhiral Coats, Alysha Acevedo and Pablo Medina.
