The AACC Riverhawks’ fall sports are on the cusp of a new season.

Women’s Volleyball

AACC Women’s Volleyball ended the previous season with a record of 4-12.

“It’s a learning experience all around, especially trying to get to know the girls, getting to know their type of style,” Gregory McDivitt, head coach of the team, said. “So the biggest thing is getting that team camaraderie back.”

This year’s team has a large freshman base, which is not rare for the Riverhawks.

“Passing is definitely something we need to work on but I think we’ll get there.”

Women’s Cross Country

Last season, the River- hawks ended as Maryland Junior College champions and National Junior Col- lege Athletic Association Division III Region XX champions.

The team’s goal this season is to take the title of Maryland Junior College and Regional champions back-to-back years.

“If everyone improves as an individual, then we’re going to get better and bet- ter,” Griffiths said.

Men’s Soccer

AACC Men’s Soccer looks poised to build on last year’s winning season.

The team’s offensive line remains strong with returning sophomores Garrett McLendon and Christian Masters.

McLendon and Masters finished last year’s season ranked first and third in the AACC Riverhawks’ Athletic Campaign with leading individual stats. Masters ended with 16 goals, adding to McLendon’s 17.

“I think the sea- son will be a good one,” Brandon Long, co-captain for the Riverhawks, said.

“We’re off to a bit of a slow start, but we are getting to know each other and gel.”

AACC Men’s Soccer added freshmen Andrew Wick, Logan Mayette, Mayglin Estrada, and Mark Jacoby to the roster, bringing the Riverhawks some fresh skill.

AACC Men’s Soccer ended the previous season with a record of 14-4-1.
