PCC Volleyball Alum Rangel Named RRAC Player of Week
Pasadena City College women's volleyball alumnae Marissa Rangel immediately made waves at the four-year college level in just her first week of play at Texas Wesleyan University. Rangel was named the Red River Athletics Conference Libero of the Week thanks to her outstanding performance in the Lady Rams' 2010 season-opening matches.
Rangel, the all-time digs leader for PCC, signed with TWU earlier this month. The junior defensive specialist posted 53 digs for Texas Wesleyan. She had just one reception error in 62 attempts. Against Langston University, Rangel totaled 23 digs and made two service aces.
Rangel played for the Lancers and head coach Tammy Silva in the 2008 and 2009 seasons. She was a two-time, All-South Coast Conference First Team selection and helped Pasadena win its first-ever SCC championship last year. She earned the President's Award for the 2009-2010 PCC school year.
