The LBCC Roadrunners (24-9, 8-0 in Conference) came home from a week long road trip and seized the night, beating the Cougars 3-0 and continuing their win streak to a whopping eight games in total. The matches were won 25-9, 25-6, and 25-17. LBCC was firing on all cylinders in every aspect of the game, and only let off of the pedal in the final match.
“All of us played really smoothly, everything was clicking,” said freshman Mitra Aflatooni.
Clackamas (17-16, 4-5 Conference) came into the week on a four game winning streak, but lost their game with Chemeketa 3-0, something that can be taken into account when looking into their performance against the Roadrunners. In the first two matches, the Cougars scored only a combined 15 points, a reminder of LBCC’s high powered offense and consistent defense.
Some standout players for the Roadrunners included Madelynn Norris and Elizabeth Weber, who both combined for 33 assists. On the offensive side of the ball, Mitra Aflatooni provided 11 total kills for the Roadrunners and played a huge role in creating momentum for the team
LBCC will now head back on the road and to face Chemeketa (10-16, 4-4 Conference) and will look to increase their win streak to 9 games. They won’t return to LBCC until Friday, Oct. 26 against Clark (13-15, 4-3 Conference).
