The Alumni Team
The alumni game lived up to all of the hype, and both sides had a great time! With twelve total alumni in attendance, they were able to put together a solid team that gave the current Vikings a great preseason test. The 2010 Vikings came out on top 5-0 (25-14, 25-11, 25-21, 25-18, 15-10).
In attendance were Amanda Stiefel Wells (All Time Kills Leader, All Time Aces Leader, 2nd for Career Digs), Shawn Carroll Darling (All Time Digs Leader, 3rd for Career Aces), Meghan Francis (All Time Block Leader, 2nd for Career Attack Percentage, 3rd for Career Kills), Ashley Weider (2nd for Career Assists), Jamie Boze (2nd for Career Kills, 2nd for Career Blocks),
Grace Brannon (4th for Career Kills), Molly Cline (3rd for Career Digs), Rachel Moreau (3rd for Career Assists, 3rd for Career Blocks) . The rest of the alumni team was made up of former All Conference performers (Taylor Minor), team captains (Leah Thomson, Betsy Bowers), and Top Ten Career Record holders (Nikki Weaver, Leah Thomson, Taylor Minor). Needless to say, the current Vikings are fortunate to have a great legacy to follow!
