New Knoxville senior outside hitter Madison Lammers signed her letter of intent to attend Owens Community College Monday at New Knoxville High School, joining the Express’ volleyball team next season.

Lammers is a four-year varsity letter winner for the, Rangers who has compiled a 64-32 regular season record since Lammers joined the team as a freshman in 2012.

During her freshman year, Lammers broke the school’s single season blocks record with 118 and earned second-team All-Midwest Athletic Conference honors as a sophomore and junior.

This season, Lammers was named first-team All-MAC and first-team All-District 8, while amassing 236 kills, 21 aces, 21 blocks and 235 digs while playing in 70 sets.

In her high school career, Lammers has competed in 205 sets, collecting 713 kills, 234 blocks, 1,166 digs and 120 aces.

Lammers will join a successful Owens volleyball program that was 34-6 overall this season and crowned 2015 Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (OCCAC) champions with a 14-0 conference record.

However, before Lammers plays for another team that also wears the red colored jerseys, she will attempt to propel her team in the regionals for a chance to go to state later this week.

The Rangers will face top-seeded Jackson Center Thursday at Tippecanoe High School in Tipp City.
