This time, turnovers doom Laney

Eagles play at Fresno City after 24-14 loss to De Anza Two weeks ago, the Laney College football team was riding high with a 3-1 record, fueled in part by a plus-12 turnover margin—10 interceptions, nine fumble recoveries vs. seven miscues (they’ve made). Well, that didn’t last long. The Eagles made three turnovers, De Anza College had none and it resulted in a rather lackluster 24-14 loss to the (aforementioned) Dons in Cupertino on Oct. 3. The loss drops Laney’s record to 3-2 as the Eagles head to Fresno for a 6 p.m. game against the up-and-down Fresno City College […]

Uphill climb for volleyball team

Eagles defeat Contra Costa College for first victory The Laney women’s volleyball team hasn’t had a lot of success this season, but then again the team’s won-loss record over the years has been something less than stellar. Second-year head volleyball coach Jade Sanford is trying to change that—along with the Eagles’ success, culture, and attitude. “We’re a work in progress,” Sanford said, “but I feel we’re further along at this point than we were last season. What the girls really need right now is a little more confidence in themselves. “We have some great hitters, a couple of good passers—we […]

Turnovers sparking Laney wins

Turnovers sparking Laney wins

10 interceptions, nine fumble recoveries lead to a 3-1 record Eagles to play De Anza Oct. 3 before bye week Interceptions. Fumble recoveries. Teams can live (and die) when it comes to turnovers. One of the signature signposts of a team’s success (or failure) is the number of turnovers it generates versus the number it yields. Right now, the Laney College football team is riding high on turnovers. They have 10 interceptions and nine fumble recoveries. Conversely, the Eagles have only committed seven miscues. That’s a turnover margin of plus-12 (19 minus 7) and it is always an advantage to […]

Water polo seeks improvement

Water polo seeks improvement

The Laney women’s water polo team went 1-16 a year ago—including a 0-9 record in Coast Conference play—but you wouldn’t be able tell if you talked to Eagles head coach Beth Flynn. Despite bringing back just one starter from last season, Flynn, a former Laney water polo player herself, feels pretty optimistic about what is a relatively new sport on campus. The team only fielded eight players last year and often found it difficult to practice efficiently. Matters got worse when the team went into the Coast Conference championships with just seven players, the minimum allowed by the rules. The […]

No title, but Eagles play a spoiling role

A Bay Valley Conference title wasn’t in the cards for the Laney College baseball this season, but the Eagles made a difference in the BVC standings anyway. A 9-6 home victory over Solano College on April 14 prevented the Falcons from taking the lead in the BVC by a game over College of Marin. Laney couldn’t do it twice; the Eagles lost to the Mariners 9-2 on April 24. Both Solano and Marin (19-5) qualified for the Northern California Regional. The Eagles finished with a 14-22 record overall and were 6-18 in conference play, not bad considering the team weathered […]

Eagles break losing streak in a big way

Laney wins four straight after suffering 17-game slide The long losing streak for the Laney College baseball team is over. The Eagles snapped a 17-game skid with an 8-1 home victory over Mendocino College on April 7, and then extended their winning ways for three more games, including a 9-6 victory over Bay Valley Conference leader Solano College on April 14. Laney won eight of 12 non-conference games before losing its first 16 games in the Bay Valley Conference. Everything seemed to conspire against the Eagles—poor pitching, poor hitting, shoddy defense and plain bad luck. Five of the losses were […]
