COLLEGE CONNECTIONS: Herschberger reaches a VB milestone

GOSHEN — Senior libero Courtney Herschberger has become Taylor University volleyball’s all-time digs leader after a recent 24-dig performance in a 25-15, 21-25, 17-25, 26-24, 15-11 Crossroads League loss to Bethel.

The Fairfield High School graduate broke the record  of 2,674 digs held by Rachel Malinsky in the fifth set of the contest with Bethel. With 24 digs against Bethel, Herschberger’s career total now stands at 2,679 digs.

“It’s really a great honor and I really can’t attribute very much of it to my own skills,” Herschberger said in an interview on the Taylor Web site. “Our coach, she really brought me along a long way. I am really blessed to be in a great program.”

In her last three seasons at Taylor, Herschberger has ranked in the top three on the team for digs per set, averaging nearly five digs per set each season. This year she is continuing her dominance averaging just below five digs per set.

Herschberger moved to the libero position at Taylor after playing as an outside hitter at Fairfield where she was coached by her mom Carla Hershberger. Hershberger has helped Taylor to a 120-35 record during her career, including a 51-5 mark in Crossroads League play and a 51-7 record at home.

“I would say she is one of the best liberos in our region, hands down, and is definitely respected nationally for the things she does,” Taylor head coach Brittany Smith said.


Junior libero Amanda Troyer (Elkhart Memorial) had 20 digs, senior setter Lindsay Marks (Memorial) 27 assists and nine digs and senior outside hitter Callie (Hartman) Patrick 11 kills for Bethel in a 23-25, 25-13, 25-18, 25-16 win over Goshen College in Crossroads League action.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
