GRCC volleyball player Annie Holesinger named MCCAA Western Conference Player of the Year

Grand Rapids Community College volleyball player Annie Holesinger was named Western Conference Player of the Year by the Michigan Community College Athletic Association on Wednesday.

Holesinger, and Audrey Torres were named to the MCCAA’s All-Region team while six other GRCC student athletes were named to the All-Conference Team.

The team this season enjoyed an 18-match winning streak spanning 66 days, a 10th conference title, finishing 14-0 in Western Conference play, and an MCCAA Championship — the team’s fifth in the last six years. The team was ranked No. 6 in the nation at the end of the season.

“GRCC volleyball has a winning tradition, and we’re proud of the effort our student-athletes put in on the court and in the classroom,” Athletic Director Lauren Ferullo said. “Our team was one of the best in the nation. The individual awards are special, but reflect the success of the entire team and the hard work of the coaches.”

Holesinger, a sophomore from Rockford, was named All-MCCAA, First Team All-Conference and was a member of the All-Tournament team at last weekend’s NJCAA Region XII Great Lakes B Tournament. She was first on the team in kills with 346, blocks with 73 and hitting percentage, .322.
