Buccaneers start nine new softball recruits Dawson Community College welcomes nine freshmen to campus in 2011-12 who will lend momentum to the upcoming Buccaneer softball program.
On a roster that currently features seven Sophomores, the Buccaneers continue to add to their foundation players. Among the 2011-2012 recruiting class are many Montana grown talents.
When she was a student at Dawson Community College, Britany Fleck needed a horse to break for a class she was taking. A filly named Dasher Dude filled the bill.
Little did Fleck know that filly would help break her on to rodeo's biggest stage.
Riding Dasher Dude - also known as Rootie - Fleck became the first North Dakota woman to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo in barrel racing. The 10-day event begins Thursday.
Dawson Community College Buccaneers Head Softball Coach, Jim LeProwse, is pleased to announce that Jamie Aiken and Bryce Mitchell have given verbal commitments for the upcoming 2012-2013 season. Both are from Roy Utah.
This season, Aiken pitched and played third base for the Roy High School Royals. Touted as calm under pressure with a strong desire to win by her Utah high school coach, Mandy Koford, Jamie will be a positive force for the Lady Bucs.
After volunteering around 500 hours in the month of October at various events like HarvestFest and Haunted Hollow, Montana Campus Corps is ready to host the 2nd Annual Bucky’s Turkey Trot! Last year, it consisted of a 1 mile run for children, and a 5k/10k run for adults wherein families could either donate canned goods for admission or pay in cash. In this manner, we raised food for the Dawson County Food Bank.
Dawson Community College and Sheridan College will meet for the annual Dig Pink,breast cancer awareness game October 25th at 7pm in Toepke Center.
The Dig Pink game was originally planned for October 8th against Casper but was rescheduled for later this month against Sheridan College.
"This is an important cause and we were not going to let it go." said DCC volleyball Coach John Marble “We would like to thank the community for their continued support as the Lady Bucs battle on this season and invite all to attend the game."
Lady Bucs drop a hard fought battle to NDSCS in 4 sets with scores of 18-25, 25-22, 19-25, 16-25. Shelby Jessiman and Lindsey James led with 8 kills each. While NaTasha Mathis led with a .250 hitting efficiency and 5 blocks. Katie Lyons dished out 22 assists, 3 Service aces, three blocks, including 2 block solos, 11 digs, and 2 kills. Desiree Schauman led the team with 16 digs.
It has been four years since Dawson Community College started a women’s volleyball program. And though the team’s current record of 4-15 fails to impress, it does not tell the whole story.
The team is now made up of mostly new players, as 10 of 14 women joined the team in the beginning of the season. Undersized and out-numbered, they now struggle to find the confidence needed to secure wins.
Still, these athletes consider themselves underdogs, fighting to establish a winning tradition for future Lady Buccaneers.
The Dawson Community College women’s volleyball team continued their road struggles this past weekend as they finished 1-3 in the Western Wyoming College Tournament.
With the losses, DCC fell to 4-15 on the season. They lost to Snow College on Friday in their first match, with scores of 7-25, 24-26 and 19-25, head coach John Marble said.
"[Snow College] was big, our pre-match cheer was David," Marble posted on the Lady Buccaneers’ Facebook page.
Sophomore Desiree Schauman, 5'5", out of Helena, MT, is ranked #19 in the nation in Digs per set. "Pretty cool stuff" said Women's Volleyball Coach John Marble.
Schauman plays the DS position for the Buccaneers in the back row only. She is a Defensive Specialist, both quick and a good passer.
Aaron Carroll will become head coach of the Buccaneer baseball program this fall. Coach Carroll brings ten years of baseball collegiate coaching experience to DCC. He spent the last seven years as head coach of Chowan University which is a NCAA Division II program in Murfreesboro, NC.
