LCCC makes history in regional tournament

The Lorain County Community College volleyball team made history last week, making it to regionals for the first time in school history.

The Commodores, who are considered Division III in the Ohio Community College Conference, play in the National Junior College Athletic Association.

They finished as runner-up in the NJCAA Region XX, District G, D-III tournament played at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland.

Their loss was to Butler Community College in the championship match that would've sent them to nationals.

Midview's Kathleen Goodman, Clearview's Stefanie Soto and Western Reserve's Brannigan Fannin made the All-Tournament team for their outstanding play in the tournament.

"We're all very excited," LCCC coach Jennifer Lee said in a press release. "This is the first time in LCCC's volleyball history that a team was in the regionals."

Fannin was also nominated for an All-American award and is ranked sixth in the country for most blocks (105) and seventh in the country in kills (311).

Soto is ranked second in the country in digs (526) and is being considered for All-American honors.

Goodman was named to the Honorable Mention list for All-Conference.
Other locals on the team are: Kaela Hines (Elyria), Christine Parker (Southview), Anne Henderson (North Ridgeville), Hannah Sedar (North Ridgeville), Holly Klesta (Elyria), Pamela Urwin (Bay) and Terri Brozewicz (Avon).
