Victoria, Texas -
Victoria sports history made late Thursday afternoon.
I was at the Victoria College Sportscenter for the first ever practice for the VC National Junior College Athletic Association volleyball team. 12 players are on the team. The co-captains, Hope Trevino and Gabby Weido, are the two players returning from the Pirates team that won their last club league championship back in the spring. Victoria College played in that club league for 15 seasons, but now they are in the NJCAA. Area players on the Pirate volleyball team include Kiki Miller from Shiner and Nicole Ressman from Ganado. I talked with her and Hope Trevino.
Said Trevino, "It's very exciting. It's good to be a part of a new year, a new team. The only returners are myself and Gabby, who is also a captain. It'll be exciting. We'll be playing new teams and we'll get experience that we never did last year."
Said Ressman, "I'm very excited. I actually achieved my goal. It's very exciting, especially to be on the first one. It means a lot."
Victoria College volleyball's first-ever NJCAA game will be at the VC Sportscenter. It'll be August 22 at 6;00 PM against Wharton County Junior College.
