Photo by Mike Wertman – Leading Albion into the upcoming volleyball season will be this quintet of veterans including Bri Johnson, Logan Conlon, Rylee Pearles, Ashlyn LeBaron and Shakyeliz Luna.

Looking to improve upon last year’s 2-8 Niagara-Orleans League record, the Albion volleyball squad is led this season by a group of five veterans.

That quintet includes seniors Bri Johnson and Ashlyn LeBaron along with juniors Logan Conlon, Shakyeliz Luna and Rylee Pearles.

The Purple Eagles are also looking to juniors Eowyn Pate, Arianna McGurn and Alexis Grandy and freshman Maya Knaak.

“We lost two key seniors but we have a strong returning group and we look to keep improving,” said Coach Melody Beecher.

The Purple Eagles will open the N-O season at Roy-Hart on Wednesday.
