Former Raiderette and MCHS alumni Heather Vann and her Vol State Lady Pioneers will visit Motlow State Community College to take on the Lady Bucks on Nov. 17. Vann played as part of the 2009-10 squad who took second place in the TSSAA State Tournament. She also won individual All Tournament honors and scored her 1000th point for Moore County as a junior that year.
The following year, she and the Raiderettes went on to beat Forrest for the District 9A Championship. They ended their season in the Region 5A Tournament with a 49-39 loss to Loretto.
The game tips off at 2 p.m., according to the Motlow website.
It should be an interesting game. The Holland Era begins for the Lady Bucks on Nov. 9 with a home opener against Columbia State. That game tips off at 6 p.m.
Although this is Aaron Holland’s first opportunity to be a head coach, and despite the fact that he got a late start on recruiting because of his late hire date, he recently said that he believes his first Lady Bucks team is talented enough to compete for the TCCAA championship.
“We are committed to doing things the right way,” says Holland, who came to Lynchburg from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Ark. during the summer. “We expect to win and we expect to graduate, and anything less than that is not meeting our standards. We are setting that tone from the start.”
