WNCC’s Morgan Broussard dives for the ball during a recent home volleyball match. Broussard, a 2012 graduate of Gering, helped the Cougars to their 30th win of the season as the starting setter in wins on Thursday, Friday and Saturday on the road. The Cougars' final two home games will be this weekend when they host Northeastern Junior College on Friday and Casper College on Saturday. 
TRINIDAD, Colo. — The second-ranked Western Nebraska Community College volleyball team continued to breeze along in south sub-region play sweeping past Trinidad State Junior College 26-24, 25-12, 25-20 Saturday afternoon in Trinidad, Colo.

The win was the Cougars 24th straight victory and it was the team's 30th win of the season. On top of that, the Cougars have now won 42 straight sets.

The Cougars, however, came close in dropping the first set but battled back to get the first-set win 26-24. Assistant coach Fatima Balza said they were down 16-11 at one time and trailed 21-19 before tying the game at 22-22. A big key in the win was a big scoring run by freshman Yoro Tovar that helped spark the team.

After that, the Cougars finished off the Trojans with the 25-12 and 25-20 wins.

Priscila Mendes led the Cougars with a double-double of 10 points and 10 digs. Tovar and Danika Youngblood each tallied nine kills. Tovar also had four blocks, while Youngblood had 11 digs.

Also for the Cougars, Morgan Broussard tallied two kills, two blocks, nine digs, and 41 set assists; Kat Agson had six kills and three blocks; Megan Johnson had five kills; Allora Tanner had four kills; Lauren Knox had four digs; Alex Rivera had 20 digs; and Tasha Meyer had five digs.

The Cougars' final two home games will be this weekend when they host Northeastern Junior College on Friday and Casper College on Saturday.
