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 Student Senate will commemorate the unique and passionate life of beloved history and humanities instructor Tom Speechley with a dodge ball tournament in his name Saturday, October 8 at 10am. Mr. Speechley passed away this past August in Cape Cod.
