MCC Reinstates Volleyball Program

(Miles City, MT) Miles Community College President, Stacy Klippenstein, is proud to announce the reinstatement of volleyball after an 8 year moratorium.

In 2009, after a successful season, the MCC Board of Trustees voted to discontinue the program after being unable to find a qualified candidate for the Head Coaching position. The continuation of the program has been long awaited by both the college, and the community. The board of trustees, in coordination with President Klippenstein and Athletic Director Jeff Brabant, voted to reinstate the program for the 2016-2017 school year.

The program will rejoin Region IX and will play a full conference schedule as an NJCAA Div. 1 program beginning in the Fall of 2017. MCC will be one of 17 teams in a tough Region IX that will compete for a regional title and the opportunity to play at the NJCAA Div. 1 National Tournament. The 2015 Region IX champion, Western Nebraska, was this years national runner-up.

During the upcoming 2016-2017 school year, Head Coach Stephanie Quigley(full press release coming soon), will be handling the recruiting of any future Pioneer volleyball players. If you are interested in the opportunity to play for Miles Community College, contact her via email at quigleys@milescc.edu.

President Klippenstein on the reinstatement of the program:

"MCC is excited to announce the revitalization of our NJCAA Division I Volleyball program. I believe this is a great addition to an already strong athletic program and it will allow Montana students to continue to play a sport they love while attaining a valuable college degree. This will also add another sports program for Miles City to celebrate and support. Playing in Region 9 of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) will bring nationally recognized Volleyball programs to compete against our Pioneers and will allow our student-athletes the opportunity to move on and play at the next level."

Head Coach Stephanie Quigley on program outlook:

“I am grateful to continue the Pioneer Volleyball tradition. I hope to see success for all student-athletes who come through the program both on and off the court. For our upcoming season, and also future seasons, I am looking forward to recruiting and coaching athletes with a great understanding of the game, self-motivation, and a character that can be used to mold the program into a perennial national contender.”

Recruiting form will be available at www.mccpioneers.com
