Three members of our 18 Hawks team have accepted offers to continue their careers next season with Division I collegiate programs. Senior outside hitter Jamie Grauvogel from Harrison (OH) High School will attend Northeastern University in Boston, MA. Middle hitter Michele Metzler from Lawrenceburg (IN) will be staying in town, accepting an offer from Miami University. Setter Karyn Powell from East Central (IN) High School will be serving our country after leading the US Military Academy at West Point.

After sending 9 graduates to collegiate programs last season, Borderline has already started providing intercollegiate opportunities for the Class of 2007. Other members of 18 Hawks and 17 Red have offers that we will be able to announce throughout next season. These 3 Division I signings will double our alumni at that level. There may even be more Division I offers before the season ends. We have several athletes with offers from Division II and Division III schools looking to sign them. The Class of 2008 is also being heavily recruited. Keep up the hard work!
