With an outstanding weekend performance at the Battlefield Classic, sophomore outside hitter Allie Stranick helped the Bullets volleyball team achieve a second consecutive undefeated 4-0 start to the season.

Leading the Bullets’ offensive attack with a team best 42 kills, Stranick also gave a strong defensive effort with 36 digs. The Bullets took 3-0 sweeps over Gallaudet, Messiah, Penn State Harrisburg, and Meredith this weekend.

As a team, the Bullets look to build on last year’s 20-8 overall and 5-5 conference finish.

Stranick finds herself in a position of leadership on a team that only has one senior, stating, “Since we don’t have any captains, I feel like I can be more of a non-vocal leader, [by] setting a good example.”

So far, Stranick has set that example with four great statistical performances on both offense and defense. Stranick is looking forward to a sophomore season in which she hopes to improve on last year’s Honorable Mention award last year.

All-Centennial accolades are very much in reach for Stranick who is surrounded by a team that thrives on high energy, consistency, and momentum.

“Coach always talks about giving that extra 1%,” said Stranick. The extra 1%, a team mantra for this 2018 season, has so far produced a winning streak that the Bullets hope to continue with the upcoming Lycoming Tournament on September 7-8.
