GRCC volleyball unexpectedly headed to national tournament

Although Muskegon Community College was slated to play in the tournament, the team had to withdraw due to illness.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — After thinking their season was over last week after facing the undefeated Muskegon Community College, the Grand Rapids Community College volleyball team will be competing in the National Junior College Athletic Association D2 National Tournament. 

Although Muskegon Community College was slated to play in the tournament, the team had to withdraw due to illness.

“Muskegon had a tremendous year, and we’re sorry for those student-athletes,” said GRCC Interim Athletic Director David Selmon. “Our players also worked very hard and put together a solid season. The Raiders will proudly represent their rivals and the rest of the state as it competes in the tournament.”

With an 8-5 record this season, GRCC will be heading to Cedar Rapids, Iowa next week.
