Still hope for bowl bid

Eagles must defeat Chabot to go There is no getting around it—for the Laney College football team to receive a postseason bowl bid it must defeat Chabot College on Friday, Nov. 13. One advantage for the Eagles—the game is at home. Game time is 7 p.m. But after a satisfying 38-17 home victory over the College of Sequoias on Oct. 30, Laney dropped an unsatisfying 26-21 game to San Joaquin Delta in Stockton on Nov. 7. The loss to the Mustangs dropped the Eagles record to 4-5 overall and 1-3 in the National Valley Conference. Teams have been picked for […]

Historic volleyball win

Eagles beat Marin for first time Jade Sanford predicted it. The Eagles bought into it. “I told the team before the game that we were going to win,” said Sanford, Laney College’s head women’s volleyball coach. “And it was a good feeling among the players that they could.” What “it” was was an improbable 18-25, 25-23, 13-25, 25-23, 15-10 home victory against the College of Marin on Nov. 6. It was the first victory ever against the Mariners and it was also the first victory ever against a team that it considered in the top tier (along with Solano College, […]

Time for Eagles to get back on track

After two losses, Laney plays Sequoias on Oct. 30 The Laney College football team, after suffering three straight losses, will attempt to get back on the winning track when it plays host to the College of Sequoias on Friday, Oct. 30. Game time is 7 p.m. Laney (3-4, 0-2 in the National Valley Conference) has seen its conference title aspirations just about disappear with its last two losses—35-16 at Fresno City College on Oct. 17 and 41-20 at home to Modesto Junior College on Oct. 23. The Eagles should have an easier time with COS (4-3, 0-2). The Giants began […]

New rules for women’s basketball

12:32 PM

NCAA mandates four 10-minute quarters, other changes The NCAA approved changes in game rules to women’s basketball this past June. The change in rules included implementing a four-quarter format, as opposed to 20-minute halves. In the new format, there will be five time fouls per quarter that will reset on a per- quarter basis. Other changes include the option to advance the ball in the final minute of a game. Not long after the rule change, the Community College Coaches Athletic Association (CCCAA), which governs women’s basketball in California, adopted the same rules for the upcoming season. Laney women’s basketball […]

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 […]
