She has 276 kills this season and is second all-time at AVC in that category with 469. “I always thought I’d play (at a four-year school), but only if a coach recruited me,” Bull said. “I wasn’t going to pursue it.” Sophomore middle blocker TaMesha Jefferson (Lancaster) is being recruited by Cal State Dominguez Hills. All three have helped lead the third-place Marauders (11-5, 7-3 in Foothill League) to one of their best seasons in years. AVC has a chance to bolster its long shot odds of landing an at-large playoff berth when it plays host to first-place San Bernardino Valley tonight at 5. The Marauders conclude their regular season at home against Chaffey of Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday at 5. “They’ve helped each other,” AVC coach Jane Cwayna said. “Tiffany sets them up and Jennie kills them.” LANCASTER – At the start of the season, Antelope Valley College sophomore volleyball standouts Tiffany Bull and Jennie Nua weren’t expressing much interest in playing at four-year schools. But both are having the type of season that have fueled scholarship ambitions. “That’s what helped me decide,” Nua said. Bull, a setter who helped lead Littlerock High to its first Golden League title in 2004, has already set a new AVC all-time record for assists. She has 1,419 with two remaining matches. Both players have been contacted by several out-of-state schools. Bull, who plans to major in public relations or communications, has been contacted by a Montana State Northern coach, and said she’s interested in playing for its Div. I program if scholarship money is offered. Nua said CS Northridge is the state’s only school that offers the deaf studies major she plans to pursue. She said her preference is to attend an in-state four-year school. All-conference: AVC was represented by four players on the All-Foothill Conference women’s soccer team. Sophomore defender Jillian Janosky (Palmdale) was a first-team selection for a second consecutive season. Freshman striker/midfielder Amber Solis (Littlerock), who led the team with eight goals, was also a first-team selection. Freshman defender Ericka Mendoza (Palmdale) and freshman striker Katie Tague (Palmdale) were second-team selections. State-bound: Jose Navarro (Antelope Valley) and Jelani Carter (Palmdale) placed 74th and 76th at the Nov. 4 men’s and women’s Southern California championships in San Diego. Both advance to the Nov. 19 state meet in Fresno. Gideon Rubin, (818) 713-3607 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
