LOCAL ROUNDUP: Yuba volleyball holds off Alameda
The Yuba College volleyball team held on to top Alameda in five games of Bay Valley Conference play on the road Friday.
The 49ers escaped with a 21-25, 25-10, 24-26, 25-14, 15-5 victory just before their biggest match of the season.
"It was a tight one, but we won," said Yuba coach Greg Chapman. "Our big game is on Wednesday."
