The Pirate Volleyball team proved they are a force to be reckoned with at the PJC Classic, the tournament held at the Milton campus for area community college teams, on Friday.
They started off strong against Southern Union Community College from Wadley, Alabama. During the second game, which they lost, the Pirates were using a majority of freshmen.
“They are getting some time to play and making the best of those situations. They’re getting better and better as time goes on,” said Head Coach Pete Pena. The Pirates won 2-1 with scores of 30-14, 28-30, and 15-12.
The second match was up against the Cougars of Lawson State Community College of Birmingham. The Pirates defeated the Cougars 30-22 and 30-17.
“We did alright today. We put ourselves in a bit of a pressure situation in the first half, but I’m very proud of our responses,” said Pena.
