“First walking in here I was nervous, but then I thought we got nothing to lose. We’re playing for each other, once we started connecting it was magic. And it felt really nice, it’s good to know that your teammates are there to support you,” said team captain Kaitlyn Keller.
With a total of 14 matches, the dons have an overall of 12-2. Regardless of playing a non-conference match against Butte College, the team took this opportunity to practice, and improve for the upcoming games.
“ It was a good win, at first we came in thinking we didn’t have nothing to lose because they’re not in our conference. It was much more of a practice to see how we did with a team that was supposed to be better than us,” said team player Megan Cheng.
The next match will be a conference game Oct. 6 against Foothill College.
