SOL American Conference

Although the Ghosts came up short, Kaley Ehnow reached a personal milestone when she collected her 500th career kill.
“She’s an extremely hard worker,” Abington coach Dan Marsh said. “I’m really proud of her because she does put a lot of pressure on herself – we were successful last year, and she wants to prove we can do it again, so it’s good to see she’s got a personal accomplishment because she worked so hard.”
Ehnow accomplished the feat in three years, and, the senior outside hitter is the Ghosts’ undisputed go-to player this season. She is averaging 18 kills a match.
“We give her the ball a lot,” Marsh said. “She played middle her whole career, and we moved her to the outside this year just because we knew we could get her the ball there, and she’s almost doubled her average.”
