HCC ousted in St. Clair quarters


PORT HURON, MICH. - After losing the first two matches of the St. Clair Invitational, the Hagerstown Community College rallied to win three straight before falling to eventual-champion Kellogg in the quarterfinals Saturday.

"I'm really pleased with the 3-3 start,'' HCC coach Marlys Palmer said. "I think we took a chance coming out here, but we wanted to show the girls some really good competition. To come back after losing our first two matches and then reach the quarterfinals against Kellogg, one of the top three teams in the nation, I think was very good for us.''

HCC finished eighth in the tournament, losing the first two matches to Henry Ford (1-15, 6-15) and Glen Oak (3-15, 11-15) before rallying for wins against Rochester (15-5, 9-15, 16-14), Wayne (15-0, 15-1) and Albion (10-15, 15-11, 15-13) before losing to Kellogg (7-15, 2-15).

Some individual highlights for HCC were Lindsey Miller's 23 kills, Erica McCann's 21 kills, Rachel Bachtell's 18 kills, 35 digs and 11 service points, Kelli Martin's 85 assists, 32 service points and 16 digs, Jenn Mentzer's 17 service points and 14 digs and Casey Nogle's 10 kills, 20 service points and 19 digs.


HCC will play at Potomac in a tri-match on Wednesday before hosting the Hagerstown Invitational on Saturday.
