The Riverside City College women’s volleyball team fell short of a victory after losing 3-0 against Saddleback College Gauchos on Oct. 14.

The Tigers lost 25-20, 25-22 and 25-20 to the Gauchos.

The Tigers were penalized three points for a rotation infraction, but should have only forfeited one point, according to a rule by the NCAA.

Head coach Monica Hayes-Trainer protested the three point deduction. The game against the Gauchos will not count, so the Tigers will host a rematch against Saddleback on Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. in the Huntley Gym.

The Tigers will play against the Santa Ana Dons at Santa Ana on Oct. 21 at 6 p.m.

Viewpoints went to press before the results of the Oct. 19 game were available.

Update: The RCC women’s volleyball team won 3-0 against Fullerton College Oct. 19.
