It was an exciting day for Spartan volleyball on April 17 when six Fergus Falls athletes committed to playing volleyball for Minnesota State Community and Technical College.
Fergus Falls High School athletes who will be on the Spartan roster in the fall include defensive specialists Nicole Anderson and Brianna Norman, right-side hitter Amber Boese and outside hitter Brooke Johnson. Signing from Hillcrest Lutheran Academy were setter Abby Taylor and outside hitter Laura Tungseth.
"It's great to have such a large representation from our community playing volleyball at M State next year," said Spartan volleyball coach Abby Crowser. "Each player will bring her own set of skills that will benefit the team as a whole."

Doranna Blascyk, senior libero from West Central Area Schools, has signed a national letter of intent to play volleyball for the Minnesota State Community and Technical College Spartans.
Doranna is a three-year starter for the Knights in volleyball, receiving all-conference honors her junior and senior years, and was voted defensive MVP and team captain her senior year.
"I'm very excited that Doranna has decided to come to M State to play volleyball," said Spartan volleyball coach Abby Crowser. "Her past experience playing libero will be an asset to the team."Doranna is the daughter of Jason and Michelle Blascyk of Kensington.
Lexi Frederick of Henning has signed a national letter of intent to play volleyball for the Spartans of Minnesota State Community and Technical College.
Lexi, a middle hitter, is a five-year starter for the Hornets in volleyball, receiving all-conference honors as a sophomore and junior and conference MVP as a junior and senior. She was voted team MVP and captain for both her junior and senior years and passed the 1,000 dig mark during her senior season.
"I'm thrilled Lexi has decided to be part of the M State volleyball team," said Spartin coach Abby Crowser. "Her ability to be both a dominating force in the front row and an effective passer and digger in the back row make for a dynamic combination."
Lexi is the daughter of Brian and Hannah Frederick of Vining.
