The Sierra College women's soccer team lost to Modesto Junior College 2-1 last Friday. Head coach Jason Gantt felt the team missed a lot of opportunities in the loss. "It was just one of those games that you completely dominate but end up losing," Gantt said. The Lady Wolverines hope to regain steam on Tuesday against Sacramento City College. The women’s volleyball team lost to Santa Rosa Junior College (23-25, 18-25, 25-17, 25-21, 15-11) after taking the first two games, and also dropped a match to San Joaquin Delta College last week. "We blew it,” said head coach Vera Nelson after the Santa Rosa contest. “We had them. In the future we can't let up like that." Nelson's team faced four major injuries in the year, but with the exception of one athlete who had a season-ending injury, all players are back. The spikers will take on Sacramento City College Wednesday. Both the men's and women's water polo squads lost to Modesto Junior College last week. The women lost by a score of 9-8. Leading the way for the Lady Wolverines with three goals was sophomore Ariel Noriega. Freshman Kelsey Carrigan and sophomore Michelle Berrios had two goals each. Also contributing to the Wolverine cause were sophomores Julie Maginnis with a goal and Malina Lorring with five steals. Freshman goalies Tori Cliff (four blocks) and Tayma Ueltzen (three blocks) were solid in the cage. The women’s team also posted a 3-1 record at the Merced Tournament over the weekend. In their first game the Lady Wolverines defeated Big 8 conference foe Fresno City 13-5. They kept the momentum rolling and defeated Saddleback College 13-7. They lost to San Diego Mesa 8-7, but defeated American River College 8-5.
