The NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship begins on Wednesday, April 14. Two Holy Cross alumnae will be competing in the first round: Emily Ryan ’17 is a Middle Blocker for UCLA; Riley Parchment ’20 is a Libero for Army West Point. At Holy Cross both were volleyball co-captains in their senior year with Coach Dave Geiser. Both were also WCAC First Team All-Conference selections. Riley has played in seven matches this season with 51 Digs and 7 Assists. Emily has played in 19 matches this season with 108 Kills and 80 Blocks. Good luck to these Tartans!
The last time two Holy Cross alumnae were in the NCAA Division I Volleyball Championship was 2017 when Rhamat Alhassan ’14 (University of Florida) and Carlise Cardoza ’14 (Howard University) played.
Also of note: Emily’s sister Maggie Ryan ’19 plays for Bryant University and Riley’s sister Jade Parchment ’18 plays for NC State.
