Volleyball season ended for Snow College after the lady Badgers fell short of qualifying for the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Tournament.

The Badgers played in a region tournament in Twin Falls, ID on November 7 and 8. Snow was required to finish in first or second in order to reach the National Championship Tournament. Snow was unsuccessful in qualifying as Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) and the College of Southern Idaho gained the tournament spots from the region.

Snow was successful during the regular season as they finished the year ranked number 10 in the nation. The Badgers finished with an overall record of 19-6 and a conference record of 6-4.

The Badgers received a lot of support from the school as Snow was among the leading teams in home attendance average.

This was a good start for first year coach Craig Choate, and fans hope to see the team improve even more under his leadership. Freshman player Briana Hopkins spoke highly of Coach Choate, saying that he helps the team play mentally strong and smart.

Hopkins also stated her excitement for next year, even after the close loss to SLCC in the region tournament, “In the end we just fell short with a few points that went their way that could have gone ours, and that was the difference…As a team we are unified and have the same goals in mind, and through working hard, we will be able to keep improving.”

Choate and Hopkins are expected to continue on with the rest of the team next year and make another run in the region tournament.
