Chelsea Myers has decided to continue her volleyball and academic career at the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore next season after a stellar two year career at Seward County. Myers has signed her National Letter of Intent and will play for coach Don Metil and the Lady Hawks next season at UMES as they come off of back to back trips to the MEAC championship game in the past two seasons. Myers was the backbone of the Lady Saints 2nd place finish in the Jayhawk West this season as she played in every game of every match through the entire season. She led the team in assists with 1,200, while finishing 3rd in blocks with 68 and 3rd in digs with 424. Her 1,200 assists in 2008 places her 7th on the all-time single season list while her 2,102 career assists place her 3rd all-time and her 759 digs put her 4th. “ I’m excited about this opportunity to play at UMES next season” Myers said. “I really liked the campus and all of the coaches and people around the school were very nice when I went on my visit there” she continued. Myers won’t have an abundance of time to think about the move as her and her Lady Hawk teammates will open up their 2009 season in under three months.
