August 20, 2014

KeAyra Petty of Detroit has signed a National Letter of Intent to play women’s basketball at Kellogg Community College and will begin playing for the Bruins this season.

Petty, a graduate of Lincoln High School, played three years of varsity basketball and was a Macomb County All-Basketball Tier 2 Honorable Mention. Petty also ran four years of varsity track.

Kyle Klingaman, head coach of KCC’s women’s basketball team, said Petty will play at the forward-center position for the Bruins.

“KeArya is a great fit for the KCC women’s basketball program,” Klingaman said. “She is an athletic player who comes from a very competitive league. I anticipate her strong defensive ability and rebounding skills will be an asset to this year’s Lady Bruins team.”

Kellogg Community College volleyball team helps area players prep for season
August 15, 2014

More than 40 area volleyball players got a chance to work with college volleyball players during the Kellogg Community College women’s volleyball team’s Summer Volleyball Camp earlier this month.

The Monday through Thursday camp was led by KCC players, who taught beginning, intermediate and advanced volleyball skills – including blocking, hitting, passing, serving and setting skills and more – to players in third through 12th grades.

Amy Julien, head coach of KCC’s women’s volleyball team, called the camp “a wonderful experience for my girls and for the campers.”

Tristen Ehredt, a returning sophomore from Battle Creek and graduate of Pennfield High School, said the KCC players enjoyed spending one-on-one time with all the campers.

“I was impressed how our team encouraged the campers and how the campers encouraged us,” Ehredt said.

Victoria Rybinski, a returning sophomore from Brutus and graduate of Pellston High School, echoed her teammate, saying her favorite part of the camp was seeing each girl improve over the course of their four days with the Bruins.

“I’m proud of how much our team was willing to help the campers get better and help them get prepared for their upcoming season,” Rybinski said.

KCC’s 2014 women’s volleyball season kicks off this month. The team’s first home game starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4, at the Miller Gym against conference opponent Lake Michigan College. Admission is free.

For information about the volleyball program at KCC, contact head volleyball coach Amy Julien at 269-965-3931 ext. 2535 or volleyballcoach@kellogg.edu or visit www.kellogg.edu/athletics/volleyball.
