“The past four years have flown by. I’ve grown so much as a player and put so much time and effort into the sport it’s hard to believe that my time here is almost done,” said Chitwood when asked about her time her at Benedictine, “Though I’m sad to be leaving the Benedictine Volleyball team I wish the girls best of luck next year.”

The Eagles will return to action on October 20th when they travel to Milwaukee to take on Milwaukee School of Engineering.
