The Pima Community College volleyball team finished its season with an 8-20 overall record, 2-14 in ACCAC conference play.
The season ended with two road losses.
After losing in straight sets on the road at South Mountain Community College on Oct. 26, the Aztecs traveled to Mesa for their final match. They again dropped three straight sets, 25-18, 25-20, 25-13.
Pima took an early lead in the first set but was unable to keep momentum going for the second and third sets.
Freshman Mattea Reeb accumulated 20 assists and one ace, while freshman Trae Johnson posted six kills, 12 digs and two aces.
The team averaged 10 kills and assists per set during the season’s 28 matches and 103 sets.
Sophomore Aleksandra Palmer led the team in kills with 261 and points with 274. Freshman Anissa Conrad led in digs with 449. Johnson topped the team with hitting efficiency at .211.
Though it was a rough season, head coach Dan Bithell is excited and optimistic about next season.
“We’re looking toward next season to improving on what we need to,” Bithell said.
