Outside Hitters Step Up For NMSU

Written by: Felix Chavez/Sun-News Reporter

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - One of the key questions the New Mexico State Aggies had to answer heading into the 2007 was who would step up at outside hitter besides senior Anna Callis.
It seems that question has been answered. On Saturday night in the Crimson/White Intrasquad match, junior Lindsey Yon and sophomore Krista Altermatt proved more than capable of helping replacing stalwarts Alice Borden and Tanya Allen from last year's team.

Yon tallied 20 kills on the night, while Altermatt had nine kills and 17 digs in the Crimson's 28-30, 30-26, 31-29 victory at the Pan American Center.

Both players are recovering from injuries that slowed them down, Altermatt suffered a broken leg in high school and Yon is coming off a serious elbow injury in April.

Yon, a transfer from Texas A&M, thought her career was over in April after leaving the Big 12 school.  Continue Reading This Post >>

A Day In The Life Of Jordan Bostic

It’s 6:00 on a Monday morning, way too early to be getting up if you’re an ordinary college student. However, Jordan Bostic is no ordinary college student. You see, Jordan is a member of the Aggie volleyball team and even though it’s February and volleyball season is still six months away; her training is already in full swing and she has to be in the weight room by 6:45. She laughs and says, “Some of the girls can roll out of bed at like 6:20 and make it there by 6:45, not me. I’ve got have breakfast before I start my day.”

From 6:45 until around 8:00 every morning, you’ll find Jordan in the weight room working out. “We work out different muscle groups each day. We do a lot of strengthening of our volleyball muscles, specifically shoulders and legs. One day we’ll work upper body, bench presses, one day we’ll work legs and we’ll be doing squats,” she explains. Jordan half grimaces as she adds, “The only constant is abs, we work our abs every day.”  Continue Reading This Post >>
