Colleen OuradaFormer Omaha Starling, Colleen Ourada, is now a senior at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. You may remember her from Nationals a few years ago, she is the one that had to play all wrapped up because she has had three hip surgeries. In addition to setting the all school kill record at Augsburg, yesterday she was named All-American. Congratulations!

News from Florida club

We took the crew to Daytona Beach to watch Alexas Thomas (a freshman from our Brevard County Starlings club) play her final home match of the season for Bethune Cookman University. It turns out that a bunch of Cocoa people were there to see a freshman girl from South Carolina State named Alexis Moses. Small world, they both attended and played volleyball together at Kennedy Middle school. Alexis moved to South Carolina after her 8th grade year. They are still great friends!!! I have been a part of the Kennedy Middle School volleyball program since its inception almost 10 years ago.
Getting Starlings in the middle school is a great choice. It has made a huge difference in Central Brevard County. And apparently in the MEAC conference. They are both outstanding players.

USA Women assist new Anaheim Starlings

80 Junior High girls in Anaheim came out to the American Sports Center this spring to participate in the first Starlings Anaheim volleyball program. Anaheim is the training home of the USA Women’s National Team and Head Coach Karch Kiraly thought it would be a good idea for the players to give something back to the community that generously hosts them. The reaction from the participating girls has been overwhelming and the program has also generated newspaper articles and the recognition of the City of Anaheim.
