Stormers Volleyball has a lot to be proud of so far this season. First, the team had their longest winning streak in over 20 years, winning eight-matches in a row.

Second, there are two players breaking school records and placing in the top 25 nationally. They are 2nd year setter Emily Barker and 1st year middle hitter Paige Siehr. Barker made her mark in MATC’s volleyball history for having 1,000 career assists on September 9. Siehr, who was an Honorable Mention All-State player in 2022, currently holds three of the top nine spots in the MATC record book. She has more than 40 aces for the season, and we’re just past the halfway mark. It is anticipated she will easily break the record for matches in a season, which is 53 aces. Siehr also holds two of the top 10 MATC spots for blocks in a match. In addition, she is currently #3 in the NJCAA region IV for hitting percentage.

Third, Stormers Volleyball welcomed their first international player, Alina Lemke. She is a freshman from Ettlingen, Germany who plays outside hitter and defensive specialist. You can read more about her here, and find more Stormers news on the athletics site.
