Middletown, VA. It’s official-Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) has a women’s volleyball team. Led by Coach Tara McCormick, an adjunct professor at LFCC, the team just finished play in a variety of spring tournaments. The LFCC Lions traveled to Virginia Tech in March to participate in a National Collegiate Volleyball Federation ranking tournament. There, the Lions played teams from the University of Pittsburgh, Georgetown, University of North Carolina, and Mary Washington.


On April 18th, the women traveled to Hood College to play their final match. Each game proved more beneficial as every player gained greater confidence and expertise.


In the fall of 2015, the Lions have matches set up against Christendom College, Trinity University, Gettysburg College, Shepherd University, and Easter Mennonite University.
