Spending a few minutes with Mom and Dad Kritter last night allowed me to check with them on how their daughter Elena was adjusting to life in college.
Elena led the Panthers Volleyball program the past few seasons that included back to back trips to the Class A State semi-finals. After graduation this past summer she started classes at Lynchburg College and is playing VB for the Hornets in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.
Elena is one of a number of area VB players that are now playing at the next level and the former Panther has hit the floor running for 3RD year Coach Beth Ellinger. Lynchburg has already competed in a pair of tournaments with Elena making the first team f All-Tourney down in Greensboro.
The Kritter's tell us that Elena is loving playing at the next level and loving her classes. They also mention that the squad is a very young one with no seniors on the team.
She describes Coach Ellinger as dynamic as as Mom added "Happy Kids means Happy Parents".
We have invited the Kritter's to keep us posted on Elena as well as her younger sister Danika, a sophomore on this seasons Panther squad. We here that there is another little Kritter making her way up the Rapp ladder- Josie (6TH Grade) plays on the Middle School team.
