I was so happy to hear the news today that Allison Pierce will be heading to play volleyball at Emory & Henry next year! Allison is an amazing player, who defends the net with ferocity and extreme effectiveness. She was an important part of the West Henderson Volleyball Team, helping that team make it to the NC State Championship game. She was a joy to watch play, and I will miss her smiling face on the bench and her laser focus on the court.
It is also very special to me to see that she will be heading to my alma mater, Emory & Henry. It is exciting to see local players head to the little school in the country. I loved my time there, and I still have many friends there. Allison, I am certain that you will enjoy your time in Emory, and good luck playing for the Wasps! I am proud of you!
I try to feature every local player who signs to play at the next level that I’ve photographed over the years. Please visit my tribute page here, and if you know of someone I’ve missed, please let me know!
