AACC Volleyball Opens 2012 Season
September 6, 2012By Duane Herr of ANNE ARUNDEL COMMUNITY COLLEGE
AACC’s women’s volleyball team played their 2012 season and home opener on Wednesday with a MD JUCO conference contest against Harford Community College.
The young Pioneer team returns just one player from last year’s squad that graduated four of their eight players. Sophomore Victoria Arnold will join six freshmen who will look to repeat the success of the 2011 team that finished as Region 20 runner-up.
In their opener AACC hosted Harford (2-0 overall, 1-0 MD JUCO) in a 7pm contest. A close first set would lead to a 25-20 win for Harford. With the 1-0 set lead Harford controlled the second set winning 25-10 to come within one game of the 3-0 match win.
The young Pioneer team would not be denied as they buckled down in the third set. The teams swapped point after point and AACC won the deciding point to win the set 25-24. Despite building their momentum in the third set the Pioneers would lose the fourth set as Harford took the match 3-1.
AACC volleyball has a busy weekend ahead with a game at Hagerstown Community College on Friday at 6pm and a tournament hosted by Baltimore City Community College on Saturday.
