Volleyball Inks Two for 2016

Volleyball Inks Two for 2016

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Lynn University's head volleyball coach Adam Milewski has locked in his first two National Letters of Intent for the 2016 campaign. Outside hitter Bailey Andrews and middle blocker Elna Argen are poised to join the Fighting Knights this fall.

Andrews and Argen mark the first-ever signees for Milewski, who will enter his second year at the helm of the volleyball program.

"I'm thrilled to welcome both Bailey and Elna to our team next season," Milewski said. "They have both excelled as student-athletes at the high school level and I know they're ready for the next challenge here at Lynn."

Andrews closed her three-year varsity career by leading Roland Park Country School to its third straight conference title. The 6-foot Owning Mills, Md. native anchored her squad in the conference championship match, totaling 36 kills and 33 digs as the Reds capped league play with a 9-0 mark. For the season, Andrews had 301 kills, 221 digs and 43 service aces as she secured her second all-conference accolade.

She currently plays for Masters Volleyball Academy on the 18-1 National Team which qualified to play in the USAV National Championships this summer.

"Bailey is a great addition to the 2016 class," Milewski added. "She's a natural attacker and has shown the ability to carry the offensive workload for her team. She's going to bring a new dynamic to our pins next season and I think she can make an immediate impact."

Argen, a 6-foot middle, will head east from Lutz, Fla. to attend Lynn in the fall. She played high school volleyball at George Steinbrenner, where she tallied 114 kills, 67 blocks and 13 aces for the Warriors this past season a senior.

Argen plays her club volleyball at Pinellas Heat on the 18 Elite team.

"I'm really excited to add Elna to the Fighting Knights team," said Milewski. "Elna is an exceptional blocker and her long frame allows her to move seamlessly from pin to pin. She has continued to improve this season and I can't wait to see her develop over the next four years."

The Fighting Knights are expected to return 12 players to next season's roster. Stay tuned throughout the offseason by following @Lynn_Knights on Twitter and Instagram.
