The LCC volleyball team started off the season with a bang, defeating Henry Ford College in three straight games in the Gannon Gym at LCC on Aug. 27.

LCC Coach Emily Quintero, now in her seventh season, said she is stressing teamwork as the 2019 season gets underway.

Returning Stars are sophomores Maya Ferland, Sophia Strieff, Mackenzie Winger, Mollie Winger and Allison Couturier.

Freshman newcomers are Jacquelyn Rollins, Harley Roe, Chyanna Caster, Brooklyn Witgen, Lana Thompson, Shelby Smyers, Amy Henderson, Miya Heinze and Carli Ross.

Quintero led last year's team to a record of 26-10.

"(We) took a few tumbles there at districts, but we did fairly well for the season," Quintero said.

This season, Quintero is focused on teamwork among the players.

"My number one goal is to really get them to work together as a team," Quintero said. "To build the comradery so then we can get some victories under our belt and have a good season."

The Stars were scheduled to play three matches in three day from Aug. 29 to 31.

LCC's next home game is Tuesday, Sept. 3 against Mott Community College.
