Arizona Western Defeats Central Arizona To Claim The Region 1 Title
Derek Diesner
Nov. 6th, 2013

YUMA, AZ – The 12th ranked Arizona Western College Lady Matadors claimed the Region 1 Division 1 title Wednesday night inside of “The House.” Final scores were 25-21, 25-15, 21-25, and 25-20.
With the victory, the 12th ranked AWC Lady Matadors improve to 18-4 overall and 14-3 in ACCAC play. With the loss, Central Arizona closes out their season with a record of 17-7 overall and 12-5 in ACCAC play.
AWC struggled at the very start falling behind 0-4 to Central Arizona to begin the match. Abbie Noland ended that skid with a kill that ignited the Lady Matadors to rip off points on a depleted Central Arizona squad.
The Lady Matadors took game one by a final of 25-21.
Game two was a completely different story, as Arizona Western controlled the game from the get-go, enroute to a 25-15 victory.
As has happened in the past the Lady Matadors struggled in game three but made a late comeback. In the end, it wasn’t enough as Central Arizona topped the Lady Matadors 25-21.
“Central is a well-coached team,” said AWC head coach Jason Smith.
Smith’s squad would rebound in the fourth set ending Central Arizona’s season with a 25-20 score.
“Everyone played well tonight, I am very proud of these girls and their attention to detail on every point,” said Smith.
Sophomore outside hitter Abbie Noland was named the Region 1 Tournament MVP following her strong performance that included nine kills and 12 digs.
The Lady Matadors continue postseason play next Tuesday, November 12th; right here at “The House” in Yuma at 7pm. AWC will host Redlands Community College out of Oklahoma in the District C Finals game. The winner of Tuesday’s game will advance to the National Championship Tournament in Casper, Wyoming which begins November 21st and lasts until November 23rd.
