Two Volleyball Players named All American's

Two Pioneer student athletes received All American Awards from the NJCAA Division III Volleyball Committee.

Tia Klein of Grand Forks, ND and Ashley Lindgren of Stephen, MN both received first team All American honors for Volleyball. Both were named first team ALL Division for the MCAC Conference and also to the All Region 13 team.

Klein was a two year starter as a libero on the Pioneer Volleyball team. This year Tia recorded 434 digs and was in the top 10 nationally at libero all season. Tia is the daughter of Terry and Crispina Klein of Grand Forks, ND and went to high school at Sacred Heart High School in East Grand Forks, MN. Tia will be finishing her liberal arts degree next semester and will continue to play women’s basketball and softball.

Lindgren also was a two year starter as setter on the Pioneer Volleyball team. Ashley tallied 69 Kills and had 595 Assists, 20 Aces, and 140 Digs. Ashley is the daughter of Dan and Renae Lindgren of Argyle, MN. Ashley will be continuing her education in the Northland Nursing program.

“Northland Pioneers Volleyball team was fortunate to have players like Ashley & Tia. Their commitment to the game of Volleyball, to their team, and to the College is amazing. Not only are they great players, but also, excellent students. They were true leaders. Speaking on behalf of the team and the coaching staff, for sure they will be missed, along with Brianna Spong & Bailee Walker. It was an honor to coach these players.” (Abdul Chamma, Northland Pioneer Head Volleyball Coach)
