The Pensacola State College Volleyball team played their last game of the season Monday, Oct. 28 at home against Jefferson Davis Community College, winning in three sets and giving their Sophomores a night and a season they will never forget.
Sophomores Taylor Linton, Michelle Doucet, Victoria Smith, Bianca brown, and Katie Jones played their last match as Pirates and made sure that it would be a game to remember. They pulled ahead in all three sets and won all of them by more than ten points.
“It was definitely a fun game to play and a great way to end the season,” Coach Chris Laird said after the game.
Each player ended their year at PSC with tremendous statistics.
Bianca Brown finished her Pensacola State Volleyball career with 262 kills, .333 hitting percentage, 81 blocks.
Michelle Doucet ended her PSC Volleyball career with 72 kills, .103 hitting percentage, 9 aces, 46 digs and 21 blocks.
Katie Jones, a middle hitter from Mobile, Al, finished with 203 kills, .221 hitting percentage, 11 aces, 51 digs and 113 blocks.
Taylor Linton finished her community college volleyball career as the All Time Career Assist Leader with 1,852 assists. Along with those assists, she’s tallied 25 kills, 234 digs and 61 blocks.
And Victoria Smith, a sophomore who started her college volleyball career at Wallace State ended her with 1 kill, 32 aces, and 394 digs.
Some of these girls hope to make it to the next step and play at a four year college. “I have a few schools up north looking at me,” Linton said. “But if I don’t play then i will concentrate on school.”
PSC ended their season with 21 wins and 14 losses and a conference record of 1-3. They will not be advancing to the state competition this year but will look to move the remaining players to becoming better athletes to have a better chance to defeat their rival next year.
