Northampton Community College's women's volleyball team finished up their regular season on Wednesday, October 17, with a perfect 19-0.
They will be the #1 seed for the upcoming Region XIX Tournament, which begins on October 23 and climaxes with the Region XIX Final Four at NCC on October 27.
"It's really more than I could have hoped for," said Head Coach Adrian Yaquez. "I think all coaches think about going undefeated, but the reality of it is that there are so many obstacles along the way and hurdles to clear that you typically get tripped up once in a while. This group of girls did a great job not allowing that to happen."
This week, the team cracked the top 10 for the first time in program history, according to the latest NJCAA Division III poll released by the national office.
"It feels great for the girls to be recognized for their efforts," Yaguez said. "I think this goes a long way toward validating what we are trying to do as a program, but we obviously need to keep working toward our goal of competing for a national title."
