The Gadsden State Community College Lady Cardinals volleyball team will play its home season opener Sept. 13 at 6 p.m. in the Gadsden State Cherokee arena in Centre against conference rivals Jefferson Davis Warhawks. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend to get a glimpse of local athletes Courtney Rowe of Sand Rock and Tamaria Mays of Jacksonville.
The Cardinals, currently ranked second in the Alabama Community College Conference, are led by first-year head coach Connie Clark. Clark took over in mid-July and has been the team's assistant coach for the past 10 seasons.
The 2015 Lady Cardinals went 28-12 overall; 12-4 in the ACCC and lost to Faulkner State in the conference tournament semifinals.
Five sophomores return from last year, including All-Region 22 outside hitter Summer Hinton; middle hitters Jada Carr and Tamaria Mays; setter Jo Lee Dobbs and outside hitter Courtney Rowe.
