Setting the Tone: Wilson, Rivers lead volleyball team to record-setting season

As the semester winds to a close, the Alabama volleyball team’s fourth season under coach Ed Allen is nearing its end as well, though the team’s pursuit of its goals are just beginning.

With four matches remaining in the regular season, the team is on pace to break a school record for season wins after tying the record of 24 wins, set last season. Leading the team on this quest to break new records are its two captains, junior setter Sierra Wilson and redshirt sophomore outside hitter Krystal Rivers.

“They’re two personalities that are somewhat reserved but set an example by how they conduct themselves and how they use their voices in a very positive way with their teammates,” Allen said of the captains. “They’re kids that appreciate one another and enjoy each other’s company. They look to problem solve together, and it makes it pretty easy effortless to work together.”
