By Felicita Lopez Mendoza

With a magnificent season the Glendale Women’s Volleyball team advanced to Region 1 Tournament.

After winning 33 games this season the Lady Gauchos are getting closer to going on to National.

“They have a shot of going to Nationals,” said Athletic Department Secretary Mary Schrock. “They are very good.”

“About 3 or 4 years ago they went to Nationals,” said Schrock. “They came in in 3rd place.”

Nevertheless the Lady Gauchos are ranked 12th in the nation.

Four teams are left in the tournament: Glendale Community College, Scottsdale Community College, Arizona Western College and Eastern Arizona College.

These teams will battle to go on to National. Only one team can classify to go on to National which takes place in Arkansas.

The Lady Gauchos faced Scottsdale Community College Friday, November 19, 2001 at 1 p.m. at Glendale Community College.
