Both teams have posted overall winning records thus far, but have struggled in league play and need a victory to maintain pace and close ground on CVC co-leaders Oakmont and Roseville.

Outside Hitter, Megan Kalemba and Middle Blocker, Mikayla Parker are the anchors for the Broncos.

Antelope Head Coach, Gabe Elmore is in the midst of an uncommon dilemma.

His Titans are 14-8 overall, but winless in CVC play, and are looking to use home court advantage and a maximum effort to lasso the Broncos for their first conference victory.

Titans’ Impact players are Outside Hitter, Valerie Rodgers and Setter, Alyssa Deonne.

Cosumnes River Head Volleyball Coach, Cassie Baxter, will join the Home Town Sports announcing team this week to serve as Match Analyst for the event.
