Anna Schriemer, captain of Vicksburg’s volleyball team in 2017, just ended her first season playing for Calvin College. She is a setter on a team that went all the way to the NCAA Division III national championship game, losing to Emory College.
The team did very well with just two losses. Schriemer’s teammate, Sarah Devries, was the national Division III volleyball player of the year.
Schriemer missed a few games due to a concussion. She returned in the regional championship match against Wittenberg College. Calvin won 16-14 and proceeded to the national tournament in Pittsburgh.
In the last four years, the team won one national title, took three trips to the NCAA Tournament semifinals, had 126 victories, four MIAA regular season titles, three MIAA tournament titles and a perfect 56-0 record in MIAA play. The senior class is the first in MIAA history to go undefeated and win the MIAA outright all four years.
It was a great season with great teammates and a wonderful start to college, according to Anna’s mother, Paula Schriemer.
