Dawson Community College Volleyball Coach, John Marble, will host Spring Buccaneer volleyball tryouts Monday March 7th at 2pm in Toepke Center, DCC's newest campus facility. He encourages all high school juniors and seniors to "get in on the fun" and attend this local tryout.
On Sunday February 20th, the last home game of the year against the Bottineau Lumberjacks took place. Both DCC basketball teams had beaten the Jacks away but hadn't seen them sense the start of the year.
The women's basketball teams played first and it was a battle right from the beginning. The Lady Bucs trailed most of the game but in the last 8 minutes of the second half the teams were tied. There was 30 seconds left in the game and the score was tied with the Buccaneers having the ball.
DCC basketball teams met their rivals, the Pioneers, for one last opportunity to play this season. The women's game started off tight. Two points for the Lady Bucs were counteracted with two points by the Pioneers.
Dawson Community College has once again honored the Lady Buccaneer Volleyball squad for their outstanding academic performance. The Women's 2009 team was recognized by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) as second in the nation for academic excellence. The minimum grade point average requirement for consideration is a team GPA of 3.00. Of 302 teams nationally, only 57 teams achieved the minimum standard of a 3.00 GPA for recognition. DCC is ranked 2nd overall with a team GPA of 3.68.
