Women's Volleyball All-Time List (updated Oct.1, 2012)

HAMBURG, NYShannon Memminger (#12 in photo) and Chelsea Reischuck (#5 in photo) took over the top spot in several volleyball statistical categories since their junior year began this fall.   During the September 29th weekend tournament at Brockport State, Memminger became the All-Time Service Ace leader and Reischuck perched atop the All-Time Kills list. Earlier, Memminger became the All-Time Assist leader in the Hawks first game of the season.

Reischuck (South Wales, NY/East Aurora) had a big hitting week during the last week of September when she earned 36 kills in four matches. She passed by the previous leader, Kristy Gonciarz ’09, against Potsdam with her eight kills. She currently has 451 career kills with a full month of her junior season still remaining. Reischuck’s best hitting percentage game was against Alfred (Sept. 29) when she earned 10 kills off 18 attempts (.444). She was credited with 14 kills against D’Youville (Sept. 26) in a four-set match; 11 kills against SUNYIT (five sets) and 10 kills in a three-set match against Alfred (Sept. 29).

Memminger’s 12 service aces earned during the last four matches in September also pushed her to the top, advancing to the number one position over Laura Stranc ’08. Memminger was tied with Stranc after the Hawks three-set win over Alfred, in a match she was credited with four aces. The Sweet Home high school native earned two more non-returnable balls against Brockport and currently sits at 141. On four separate occasions this season, Memminger earned six aces in matches.

In the 2012 opening match against Morrisville, the Hawks’ primary setter became the All-Time Assist leader. She was credited with 22 assists in the team’s three set victory. Her ‘highs’ for the year were 45 assists in the four-set victory against D’Youville; in a three-set win, she finished with 31 (La Roche) and in a five-set win against SUNYIT, she passes for 38 assists. Her assist number currently is 1,414.
