Bulldogs Are 3-4 under New Head Coach
WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College volleyball is off to a 3-4 start this season with a new head coach at the helm and plenty of new players trying to prove themselves on the court.
Caitlin Wooten, a former N.C. Wesleyan College (NCWC) standout, is guiding the Bulldogs this season. The 26-year-old native of Rockville, Md., has taken over for Tom Marsh, who retired from coaching at the end of the 2012 season.
Prior to joining PCC, Wooten spent three seasons as an assistant volleyball coach at her alma mater, where she was named MVP in two of her four seasons as a player and finished as the Battling Bishops’ all-time assists leader.
Softball's Cassie Harrell Signs with Newberry
WINTERVILLE—Cassie Harrell, an All-Region X Conference (Second Team) performer as a sophomore with the Pitt Community College softball program this spring, has signed a letter-of-intent to continue her playing career at Newberry College (S.C.).
Harrell, a Williamston native and 2010 graduate of Williamston High School, transferred to PCC in the fall of 2011, after playing a season of college basketball at Brunswick Community College. As a Bulldog, she played two seasons at shortstop, batting .282 in that timeframe and tallying a .897 fielding percentage.
