Victoria College teams win three Conference Championship trophies

Victoria College's men's and women's basketball, and volleyball teams celebrate after Conference Championship victories in San Antonio.

The VC Pirates men's basketball, women's basketball, and volleyball teams brought home all three Conference Championship Trophies in weekend games held in San Antonio.

The women’s basketball team defeated the University of Incarnate Word 60-47 to advance to the finals. The VC volleyball team defeated Northwest Vista College 25-17, 25-22, and 25-8 to advance to the championship, and the men’s basketball team defeated Southwest Texas Junior College in overtime 102-92 to go to the championship.

In Sunday’s finals, the VC women’s basketball team won over Southwest Texas Junior College 70-53 to win VC’s first-ever women’s basketball championship. Allison Peters was named the women’s basketball MVP for the tournament.

The VC volleyball team beat Trinity University 19-25, 25-20, 25-21, and 25 -22 to win VC’s fourth volleyball conference championship. Gabbie Luna was named the volleyball MVP for the tournament.

The men’s basketball team defeated St. Philips College 64-53 to win VC’s first-ever men’s basketball conference championship. Xavier Callis was named the tournament MVP.

“Each of our teams had a very hard path to the championship, and they all had to fight very hard to win both the semi-final and championship games,” said Josh Moore, intramural/extramural specialist. “All three teams played with more heart and emotion than we could have asked for. It showed the character of our student athletes here at VC to go out and compete - sometimes at a disadvantage - and fight hard to pull out the victories.”

Moore said this is the first time that one school has won all three championships in one year.

“One of our main goals for each of our teams this season was to focus on winning the championship with great players,” Moore said. “Not only did we have some of the best sports talent Victoria College has ever seen, we also had great students, teammates and moral character. It made this season very enjoyable for both me and Coach Jona Anderson. Victoria College also packed the stands for the tournament weekend. Even though we played in San Antonio – It felt like a home court advantage with an estimated 80 percent of the fans being for VC.”
