The Raiders are glad to be home after their recent weekend at the NWAC Fall Festival in Springfield, OR.. The Raiders played well, but ended up 2-4 for the weekend. Many of the teams they played were in the NWAC tournament championship with Pierce last fall.

Greg Finel, the new head volleyball coach, won his first Raider win on Saturday vs. Columbia Basin. Finel takes over for Shawna Shula who left after one season.

Today’s game is a non-league game.   Pierce was 15-17 in 2015.  Edmonds is 5-2 after the NWAC Fall Festival.  Edmonds struggled in 2015, but is off to a good start.

Pierce Volleyball hosts alumni

Pierce Volleyball opened its 2016 season by hosting a group of former Pierce Raider players on Tuesday, Aug. 23rd.  It ended up being a great start to the season.  The teams went five sets and eventually the Pierce College team won.  The Raiders want to thank the alumni group:  Haley Harn, Helena Stout, Hannah Steidle, Cami Medlock, Melissa Pittelkau, Kirstin Thornton, Erin Hrubant, Lacy Gregory, and Devyn Odom.

The Raiders got a good early start to the season.  Pierce will now go to Springfield, OR. for the NWAC Fall Festival this weekend.  The Raiders will open at home on Thurs., Sept. 1st vs. Edmonds at 7:00 p.m.

Thanks again alumni.  We hope to see all of the alumni here for the Oct. 7th game vs. Tacoma at 7:00 p.m. for the school’s 50th anniversary.Alumni2016
