For our Tuesday, Jan 19th, practice we had a guest from the past. Jenny Ingle, a middle hitter (MH) on Miami University’s volleyball team, participated in our practice. Jenny played her club ball for Dayton Juniors and graduated from Brookville H.S. From there she went to Miami University on an athletic scholarship and had a great career as a MH. After redshirting her freshman year Jenny became a four year starter and was first team All-MAC as a senior. She made great use of her redshirt season and was able to graduate prior to her senior season and will now graduate in June with a masters in Kinesiology.
Our practice went by way too fast. Jenny worked with our MHs on various attacks and conveyed techniques used in her college career. We had hoped to work on blocking and then have Jenny discuss her overall college volleyball experience but we ran too short on time. For Jenny it is back to school next week. Hopefully the players took away a few pointers and saw the passion and intensity Jenny brings to the gym. Below are a couple of pictures taken at the end of practice.
