Meet your 2018 Rattler Volleyball Team
OJC’s Volleyball Season Wrap-Up (coming soon)
Lady Rattler Volleyball
Since its inception in 1978, the Otero women’s volleyball program has seen hundreds
of young women pass through the program and continues to grow and compete at a high
level with each passing year.
The Lady Rattlers compete in the Region IX South conference which includes: Lamar Community College, McCook Community College, Northeastern Junior College, Trinidad State Junior College, and Western Nebraska Community College. The region is one of the most competitive NJCAA regions in the nation and Otero has consistently been a major competitor. Each year, the Lady Rattlers forge a new standard for those incoming and help them develop into the kind of teammates the Otero Volleyball Program is all about. They believe, “We will strive to be the premier volleyball team in Region IX both academically and athletically and gain national prominence. It is an earned privilege to be a member of the team and not a guaranteed right. Our purpose is value driven, and the values we hold true are Team, Loyality, Trust, Pride, and Integrity.”
During the 2012 and 2013 seasons, Otero finished the season second in the nation in total number of digs and second in total number of aces. The team also finished both seasons in the top twenty in total numbers of kills, assists, and points. In 2015, Otero Junior College finished 11th in the total digs, and 19th in total number of blocks, 21st in total number of kills, and 22nd in assists. In 2016, the Lady Rattlers finished 1st in the nation in digs, 9th in the nation for assists, and 10th in overall in kills throughout the season.
