The Puente Club, a new club at LBCC, won the women’s intramural volleyball tournament Wednesday, March 9, in the club’s first intramural activity.
Other clubs involved included TNT, PNK, Athena and other independent groups.
Yesenia Ochoa, 18, and Puente Club member, said the purpose of the club is to “get students to transfer. … We participate in field trips to universities throughout California and recently hosted our first club rush at the PCC.”
Robert Devin, alongside student activities adviser Derek Oriee, helped organize the event with the help of the Associated Student Body. He is also a student at LBCC and has a federal work-study job.
He said the events “help the students participate in the school and motivates students to work together and form relationships inside and outside of school.”
When talking about the tournament, Charity Clark, 18, a radio and TV broadcasting news major and member of TNT, said, “It was very fun and nice being able to play volleyball.”
Erin Asis, 20, a liberal studies major and secretary of TNT, talked about her club and said, “We are focused on providing service to the college, to promote academic excellence and sisterhood.”
