Efforts of Players and Coach Recognized with Awards

Led by third year coach and 2006 Minnesota Community College Conference (MCCC) Coach of the Year, Drew Rongere, the Anoka-Ramsey Community College Lady Rams volleyball team finished the season with a 2-2 finish in the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference (MCAC) State Tournament, Oct. 25-26, hosted by Northland College in Thief River Falls.

Anoka-Ramsey Community College women's volleyball team, including (far court, from left) Jakki Lindberg, Sarah Smith, Becky Schoenecker and Megan Hambleton), finished the season with a loss to Rochester Community and Technical College. The team was recognized however with several awards, and Drew Rongere, Anoka-Ramsey Head Volleyball Coach, was awarded MCAC Coach of the Year award.

The tournament started with Anoka-Ramsey beating Hibbing Community College in three games (25-23, 21-25, 25-16) and Itasca Community College (11-25, 25-17, 25-17). Ultimately, the team lost to tournament champions Rochester Community and Technical College (15-25, 25-22, 24-26) and to Minnesota State Community and Technical College-Fergus Falls in the first playoff round (22-25, 23-25, 27-25, 17-25).

"This was the team's third straight season earning a place at the MCAC State Tournament," says Head Coach, Drew Rongere. "We finished the regular season with a third place finish in the MCAC Southern Division. Our southern division record was 4-6 and our overall record was 14-15, with 13 of our loses coming against nationally ranked teams and teams that play in a higher division."

Playing the entire season with only six players and still qualifying for the tournament, drew attention and the efforts of three players were recognized at the MCAC banquet: Jordan Noska was named First-Team All-MCAC Southern Division; and Sarah Smith and Becky Schoenecker were both named Second-Team All-MCAC Southern Division. More awards are anticipated, including All-MCAC, All-Region and All-American.

Rongere was also recognized with the MCAC Southern Division Co-Coach of the Year award, which he received along with Carolyn Bell from Rochester Community and Technical College.
