The Falcons volleyball team hosted the Solano Classic on Friday, Sep. 22nd.
The teams attending were Solano, Napa Valley College, Shasta College, and Lassen College.

“We started off slow,” said Lovella Asuncion, a setter for Solano, “We definitely could have done better. Serve-recieve passing was killing us.”
The second match was against Lassen. Solano won three games of this match. The scores for each were: 30-23, 30-13, and 30-19.
“We improved in serve-recieve passing here and were able to run a lot of plays,” Asuncion said.
Some notable Solano players of the tournament were Karlynn Only with 21 kills, Nikki Radonich with 20, Holli De Alba with 14 digs, Christina Tangco with 13, and Katie Van Der Wende with 13.
