Emmons welcomes MAC Tournament Champion CMU women’s volleyball team to Capitol

LANSING— Sen. Judy Emmons welcomes the 2011 Central Michigan University women’s volleyball team to the Michigan Senate. The team was recognized by Emmons during session for winning the team’s first ever Mid-American Conference (MAC) tournament championship and earning its first post-season bid to the NCAA Tournament.

“I am especially proud that this team accomplished this all while boasting a 3.49 GPA,” said Emmons, R-Sheridan. “In their achievements in the classroom and on the court, they have truly personified what is means to be a student-athlete.”

Pictured with Emmons (center) and the team are Head Coach Erik Olson (center left); coaches Dave Zelenock, Rodnei Santos and Theresa Beeckman; CMU Executive Associate Director of Athletics Marcy Weston (far right); and CMU Associate Director of Academic Services Tera Albrecht (right).
