A Look Ahead

Posting one successful season after another, the Amherst College volleyball program has been consistently ranked as one of the top-10 teams in the Northeast. The 1998 team intends to make the upcoming season yet another success story. The '98 squad will look to run an exciting, quick-hitting attack and play the aggressive and scrappy defense that has characterized Amherst volleyball for years.

Leading the hard hitting attack will be senior tri-captains Nell Berens, Kristin Edgar and Erin Greenspun. Also contributing to that quick hitting attack will be Liza Abeles '01, Katherine McMullin '01, Torfay Sharifnia '00 and Stacey Whitaker '00. Victoria Gonzalez '99, Carrie Snyder '01 and Jessica Valenti '00 will anchor the defense. Setters Beth Cronin and Meredith DeMeules '02 will run the offensive show. First-years Melissa Conrad and Erica Hewes are welcome additions and will certainly contribute to what will be a very challenging volleyball campaign.
