Like her sister did nearly a year ago, senior Ally Angstmann signed her national letter of intent to play volleyball at Owens Community College next season on Monday at St. Marys Memorial High School.

“They just have a really good program this year and the next year and probably the year after that,” she said. “My sister being on the team also played a part in it too.
“I have always wanted to play volleyball with her again, and I’ll be able to for one more year.”

Ally will be joining her older sister, Erika on the Express' talented volleyball team next season.

Angstmann was one of five seniors that guided the Roughriders to a 7-2 Western Buckeye League mark in 2016 and a sectional championship for the fourth straight season.

She is also part of a group that was one of the winningest groups in the Roughriders’ volleyball program with a 64-34 record and two regional appearances. 

During her senior season, the younger Angstmann recorded 35 total  blocks, 37 service aces, 355 digs and 338 kills. For her career, the 2016 First-Team All-WBL selection played in 300 sets, racking up more than 1,000 kills, 82 blocks, 1,245 digs and 147 service aces.

She will join an Owens volleyball program that just captured its second straight district title and is second nationally with a 38-4 mark.
