Owens Community College Signs Volleyball Student-Athletes to Scholarships
Owens Community College has signed nine first-year student-athletes to volleyball scholarships for the upcoming NJCAA intercollegiate season.
Led by third-year Head Coach Sonny Lewis, the volleyball program is beginning its tenth overall season and third year at the Division II level. Participating in intercollegiate athletics at the Division II allows the College to offer scholarships to pay for tuition, fees and books for its student-athletes.
Last season, the Express completed the year with a 46-11 overall record, tying the school record for wins in a season. The program captured its third consecutive Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (OCCAC) regular season and tournament championships, finishing with an overall 15-0 conference record (OCCAC regular season and tournament matches). The Express was ranked as high as No. 3 nationally in the NJCAA Women’s Volleyball poll.
“I am looking forward to another successful season for the Owens volleyball program,” said Lewis. “Each first-year student-athlete brings exceptional athletic skills which complements a very talented and experienced group of girls returning from last year’s championship squad.”
Lewis added, “These nine incoming student-athletes will be a welcome addition, enabling Owens to once again compete for another OCCAC regular season and tournament championship.”
First-year student-athletes receiving volleyball scholarships include:
