Photo Slideshow: Hitting the beach

The Pierce College women’s beach volleyball team took to the sand for the first time on February 26, at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica.

The meet with the Bakersfield College Renegades began at 9 a.m., but the Brahmas were there bright and early just after the break of dawn to train along the coastline.

Music and cheers filled the crisp morning air as the mid-day sun started to heat up the sand.

The day consisted of ten doubles matches, three of which were won by Pierce College.

The beach volleyball team has existed at a club team in past years, but this is the first time the team will be featured as a sanctioned sport.

Pierce currently does not have a sand volleyball court, but it doesn’t seem like the girls mind spending the day at the beach.
