The Lady Bears volleyball team gave their fans another fantastic season to watch this year, particularly within our very own Metro Athletic Conference where they roared ferociously!
The girls remained undefeated against our sister colleges all the way up until the MAC Finals on Oct. 26 against Eastfield College. The game ended in a loss for the Bears, but the girls battled hard until the very end.
Even so, five of the Lady Bears were recognized in all-conference voting shortly after the end of the season. Freshman middle blocker Cadyn Laing and sophomore setter Sarah White received all-conference and all-region in first team status, and sophomore outside hitter Lauren Bratton received all-conference for second team. Honorable mentions went to freshman middle blocker Kim Parker and freshman outside hitter Shelby Ellis.
Even though the 2013 portion of the season is over, the girls are already looking ahead to 2014. Tryouts for next year’s team will be held Nov. 24 from 2-5 p.m. in the Gym. Girls who are interested in trying out or have general questions about the team need to contact Jason Hopkins, head coach, at jHopkins@dcccd.edu or 972-860-4246.
Let’s go Bears 2014!
