Alfred University’s Hall named Empire 8 volleyball all-star

ALFRED, NY — For the third time in three years, Alfred University’s Chelsea Hall (Grand Island, NY/Grand Island) has been named an Empire 8 Conference volleyball all-star.

The Empire 8 announced its all-conference squads today and Hall, a senior outside hitter, was named to the Second Team. The four-year standout for the Saxons was given honorable mention from the Empire 8 in both her sophomore and junior seasons.

Hall led Alfred in kills (246); was second in service aces (25) and digs (272); and was fourth in blocks (30).

Each season, the Empire 8 honors students-athletes from each conference school, who play on teams sponsored by the conference, with Sportsperson of the Year awards. Honorees, chosen by their coaches, exhibited outstanding sportsmanship in keeping with the conference’s mission of “competing with honor and integrity.” Senior middle hitter Samantha Wood (Newfield, NY/Newfield) is Alfred’s honoree from the women’s volleyball team.
