The Laramie County Community College Golden Eagles volleyball team started a little slow but still managed to take care of the Cougars from Colorado Christian University JV in three straight sets (25-19, 25-16 and 25-10).
In the first set, the Golden Eagles jumped out to an early lead, but the Cougars tied things back up at 6-6. After a time out from head coach Austin Albers, the Golden Eagles went on a 12-3 run to gain some separation. LCCC was in control of the second set, capitalizing on some errors from the Cougars and taking that set 25-16. The Golden Eagles put the Cougars away in the third set 25-10 in controlling fashion.
The Golden Eagles are now 9-5 on the year. They will be back in action on Sept. 15 in La Junta, Colorado, as they face Otero Junior College at 7 p.m. The Golden Eagles defeated the Rattlers earlier in the year at home in three sets.
