To go along with a stellar season, the Storm women’s volleyball team placed four of its’ athletes on the All-NEAC teams. Junior Paige Golden earned first-team all-conference honors after a season that set the record for most total attacks and third most kills by a Keuka player in a single season.

Also, sophomore Devan Curtis and freshman Morgan Eberley earned spots on the third-team All-NEAC after posting impressive seasons themselves.
