Bluestone's Erin Strider signed a letter of intent last week to attend Alderson Broaddus University and play volleyball for the Battlers.

Alderson Broaddus is a member of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) and NCAA Division II.

Strider has played for the Bluestone volleyball team for four years. She will be majoring in veterinary sciences to become a large animal veterinarian.

On continuing her athletic career at the college level, Strider said, “It feels surreal being recruited to play a collegiate sport, especially at such a great university.”

Strider said she has enjoyed her time with the Barons and coaches Darlynn and Randy Oxendine, head and assistant coaches respectively for the varsity team.

“My volleyball team and coaches mean so much to me,” Strider said. “They challenged me not only with skills but with my mind. They helped me to grow my knowledge of the game which is one of the most difficult things to do.

“Coach Oxendine took me from a beginning level player with absolutely no knowledge of the game and developed me into a college level athlete and I couldn’t thank her more for that.”
