Women’s Volleyball Team Achieves National Top 10 Ranking
Raritan Valley Community College’s women’s volleyball team has become the first team in the College’s history—of any sport—to place in the National Junior College Athletic Association’s (NJCAA) National Top 10 Rankings.
Following its October 3 win against Bergen Community College, the RVCC women’s volleyball team is now 10th in the national rankings. The RVCC Lions started the season on a 9-game winning streak and the team is now 14-1.
“Heading into the season it was easy to see we had a lot of talent in our gym, but to achieve this accomplishment is truly a testament to our athletes and the hard work they put in every single day,” said the team’s Head Coach Phil Herro. “We are definitely proud to be in this position, but we know that we still have a lot to prove,” Coach Herro continued.
The RVCC team’s schedule continues next week with homes games against Rowan College at Gloucester County on Tuesday, October 10, at 6 p.m., and against Lehigh Carbon Community College on Wednesday, October 11, at 7 p.m.
The National Junior College Athletic Association is the governing body for the nation’s more than 500 junior colleges. RVCC competes within the NJCAA Region 19 and Garden State Athletic Conference (GSAC).
