Volleyball Alumni can still kill

The Edgewood College volleyball alumni match was held this past Saturday at the Edgedome, and one of the largest group of Alumni in recent years came to show the current Eagles that they still have some serious skills on the court.

The Alumni came back from an early deficit in the first set coming up just short losing 18-25. The second set was quite different. The Alumni led from the first point to the last behind great defense and a huge block, winning 25-23. In the final deciding set, the Alumni fought well but lost in the end 17-25. Greta Gueths and Julie VonDerVellen led the Alumni with five kills each. Rebecca Gustafson (Schmidt) chipped in with a team leading 10 assists. Mandie Armstrong and Jessica Szymanski (Whittaker) added four blocks a piece. Katie Stankowski led the defense with eight digs. The other Alumni to participate were: Suzie Bourie, Karyn Jordahl, Amia Lonigro (Schaaf), Renee Mikonowicz, and Suann Saltzberry (Adler).

I would like to thank all of them for being great friends of our volleyball program and wonderful role models for our current Eagle student-athletes.
