Auburn Volleyball Senior Day Sunday vs. Ole Miss

Nov. 23, 2013



Auburn will recognize its six volleyball seniors before Sunday's final home match against Ole Miss. The Senior Day ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m. at Auburn Arena with the match beginning immediately thereafter.

Katherine Culwell, Camila Jersonsky, Courtney McDonald, Kathia Rud, Chelsea Wintzinger, and Sarah Wroblicky will be playing their last home match in an Auburn uniform. In the last five seasons - three of the seniors are fifth-year team members - Auburn has won 83 matches, including 67 in the last four years. That makes this group the winningest senior class at Auburn in the last 15 years. They were also integral parts of leading the Tigers to their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 2010.
