Coming off a 3-2 loss to Cerro Coso in its season-opener Friday, the Imperial Valley College volleyball team got on the winning track against Barstow Community College at IVC on Saturday.
The Friday night loss served as all the motivation IVC needed as it ripped Barstow in straight sets 3-0.
With the new rally scoring implemented where a point is scored on every possession and games are played to 30 points, the Arabs defeated the Vikings 30-13, 30-15, 30-20.
"We were just more excited today than we were yesterday," said IVC's Marquita Travis, who finished with 14 service points, eight aces and six kills. "I think because of that loss we just played with more drive and determination.
"I think now we're in a good place to start the season. But we still have to work a lot harder on a few things."
