VOLLEYBALL TEAM’S SEASON ENDS; LOSE IN MAC TITLE MATCH

The volleyball team’s season came to an end on Saturday, Oct. 31 but not before the T-Ducks advanced to the Metro Athletic Conference championship game and gave Brookhaven College everything it could handle in a 25-21, 25-21, 25-19 loss.

Despite the loss, the T-Ducks, who defeated North Lake College, 25-15, 25-22, 25-16, to advance to the district title game, have plenty of reasons to hang their heads high on this season, beginning with a .500 record at 15-15.

Richland also had several players rank in the top 20 statistically among NJCAA Division III players in several categories.    

Nicole Spruille ranked No. 6 in hitting efficiency at 49 percent while Serita Ingram ranked No. 8 at 45 percent.  Ingram also ranked No. 3 in blocks per set at 1.35 while Spruille also ranked No. 13 in kills per set at 3.23.

Joining Ingram in the block category was Jessica Fletcher, who ranked No. 8 at 1.20 while Jennifer Penn ranked No. 4 in digs per set at 5.53 and Rachel Pinson was ranked No. 19 in assists per set at 7.61.
