Women's Volleyball

Women's Volleyball

Pass. Set. Spike. Score.  This is the control and unbridled fury of women’s volleyball at Oakton Community College.

First-year Head Coach Vince Miranda knows volleyball first as a player at Missouri Valley College and as a successful high school and club team coach. He teaches fundamentals first, creating a skilled team that challenges opponents from the first serve to the match point.

“Volleyball isn’t the most important thing in life, but it is pretty darned close. Playing volleyball at this level requires commitment and drive. It also requires my full commitment to teach,” Miranda said. “My players learn about teamwork, goal-setting, and the pursuit of excellence. These are critical skills for success in life and in the workplace.”

Each fall, the women’s volleyball team plays top programs in the Chicago area competing in the NJCAA Region IV and Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference. Practice begins Aug. 1, and competition takes place Aug. 22 through November at Oakton’s Des Plaines campus.

Play to compete . . . learn to succeed.  Earn a degree . . . chase your dream.

Update: September 2014
Even Keel: Oakton went 1-1 in matches this week. Conference foe Moraine Valley Community College defeated Oakton 3-1 on September 9. The following day, Oakton rebounded with a 3-1 win over Aurora Community College.
