AACC Women’s Volleyball lost their fourth match, 3-0, against the Chesapeake Skipjacks on Sept. 12.
With this loss, the Riverhawks are 0-4 to start the season, but head coach Gregory McDivitt said he still has high hopes for his team to progress.
“We have a lot of young players this year,” McDivitt said. “We have a new setter so it just takes time to get used to [her] because of the communication factor.”
This is McDivitt’s second year coaching as the head coach for the team.
“I think we’re doing well; we just need to communicate a little bit more,” said second-year player and new captain Ciara Lindemann.
McDivitt said he handpicked Lindemann to be the captain because of her academic achievements and volleyball proficiency.
“She is all-around a great person,” McDivitt said. “She’s a vocal leader on and off the court and she does very well in school.”
First-year player Victoria Smith said the team needs to work on communication skills but she has had a lot of fun already this year.
“They all are amazing players,” Smith said.
McDivitt said he is optimistic that the season will end with more success than it started with.
