Hannah Pinkie and Andria Velez Named to All Region Volleyball Tournament Team
Congratulations to sophomore, Hannah Pinkie, and freshman, Andria Velez, who were named to the All Region Tournament Team at the NJCAA Division III Volleyball Regional Tournament that took place in Rockville, Maryland at Montgomery College on November 2-3, 2013.
During the tournament and overall season, Hannah Pinkie's determination to win and be successful was contagious among the team. Many times when the game seemed to be over, Hannah would rock the gym with a monstrous kill and light a spark in everyone. As the season progressed, Hannah grew more confident in herself and her abilities, making her a threat to every team LCCC played.
At the Regional Tournament, Hannah had the following stats:
• Hitting 72/101 with 47 kills
• Passing 35/76 with 15 digs
• Serving 38/41 with 5 ace
Andria Velez played a vital role in LCCC’s team chemistry and success this season. Many times throughout the season, Andria would ask her coaches or teammates to stay after practice to help her prefect something. As a libero, Andria was constantly driving and rolling across the floor to save a point. Andria led the Commodores in stats across the conference, division, and eventually at the national level. Throughout the season Andria maintained a spot on the national ranking board, never dropping below top 10.
At the Regional Tournament, Andria had the following stats:
• Passing 167/218 with 86 digs
• Serving 79/88 with 16 aces
Hannah and Andria helped the LCCC Volleyball Team break the season record for most wins by any LCCC Volleyball Team, racking up 28 wins for the season, breaking the old record of 22 wins. Congratulations to our Lorain County Community College Volleyball Team and Hannah and Andria!
