Tough Road Ahead for the Pirates

MJC volleyball starts league play this Friday, Sept 16th. They host Seirra College in the MJC Gym at 630pm. The Big 8 Conference is comprised of 4 state ranked teams and 2 additional teams listed in the "best of the rest" of the state of CA. Out of 94 CCCAA volleyball programs, the Big 8 is home to 6 of the best. Those programs ranked are Sac City (#8), American River (#10), Sierra (#11), Delta (#21), and Folsom Lake and Santa Rosa named among the "best of the rest".

The pirates have proved themselves to be formidable opponents against top ranked teams, most recently taking Cuesta College (a best of the rest team) to 5 sets, as well as scoring high points against the #1 state ranked team, Cabrillo College.

The pirates look to make an impact this year in league play. Keep on the lookout for some upsets!
