Sophomores Lead the Way

The Pensacola State College Pirate Volleyball kicks off the 2017 season against Coast Alabama – Brewton, formerly Jeff Davis Community College next Tuesday. The Pirates hit the ground running and have been working hard since August 1st when preseason officially started.

The team returns four starters from last year's squad; Ytae Cobb, Allison Von Brock, Bailey Powell and Sydney Roberson.

The 2016 team were Panhandle Conference Champions along with Cobb being named Panhandle Conference Player of the Year and selected to the FCSAA All State Team.

Expectations are always high in our program and these sophomores understand what it takes to be successful at this level." Come out and support the Pirates in their first game of the year on Wednesday, August 30th at Hartsell Arena. First serve is slated for 6:00 PM.
