Pella native Chelsea Grieger set a new career mark for digs in the Central College record books, as the senior libero recorded 38 digs in consecutive matches yesterday at the Wisconsin-Oshkosh Volleyball Invitational. Unfortunately for the Dutch, both matches resulted in losses, as Central fell 3-1 in both contests with Dominiacan and host Wisconin-Osh Kosh.

Grieger’s performances moved her to 2,179 digs in her career, passing the previous mark set by Maggie Nowicki from 2005 to 2008. The Central volleyball team is now 16-8 overall and continues tournament play today with matches against Wisconsin-La Crosse and St. Mary’s.
