MDC’s Lady Sharks volleyball team has done it again! This weekend, the team became the 2018 state champions after an impressive victory against Polk State at the FCSAA State Volleyball Tournament. Our Lady Sharks, who last year brought home both the state and national championship titles for a second year in a row headed to the state championship after defeating Santa Fe College in October.
The Lady Sharks victory (23-25, 25-20, 25-12, 25-21) featured Tiziana Baumrukova with 50 assists, one ace and eight digs, Scherine Dahoue with 12 digs, 16 kills and two blocks and Samaret Caraballo with 21 digs.
Last year, the Lady Sharks brought home the 35th NJCAA national title for MDC, and the 15th in women’s sports. Thanks to the leadership of Coach Benoit, the Lady Sharks continue their tradition of outstanding contribution to MDC’s long and successful history in collegiate sports.
With this victory, the team now has the opportunity to defend its national title at the NJCAA National Championship on November 15-17 in Hutchinson, Kansas.
