OCC Women's Volleyball Team Tied for MCCAA Eastern Conference Champions

OAKLAND COUNTY, Michigan – After a season of playing all teams in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Eastern Conference, the Oakland Community College's (OCC) Women's Volleyball team went into the conference tournament and finished Eastern Conference Co-Champions. They share top honors with Mott Community College.

OCC's volleyball team ended their season 11-1. Coach Brian Coughenour was clearly excited for his team, particularly as this was his first year as head coach.

In addition to the team championship, two outstanding players, Autumn Anderson and Emily Jansen, received All-Region, First-Team All MCCAA Eastern Conference and All Freshman Team honors. Anderson was also named the MCCAA Eastern Conference Freshman and Player of the Year.

"Autumn is very deserving of the awards. She is a dominant player in the conference and very hard working," says Coach Coughenour.

OCC's Athletic Department further recognizes the dedication, hard work and passion of their student athletes, who successfully pursue higher education, athletic achievement and personal growth.

OCC athletic teams are known as the Raiders and are members of the National Junior College Athletic Association and the Michigan Community College Athletic Association. For more on OCC's Athletic programs, visit the Raider Athletics webpage.
