Alaskan Native Allison Leigh Featured in Hometown Alaska Sports Blog

"Leigh leads Metro Atlantic in blocks," written by Alaska Sports Blog's founder Van Williams

SPENARD, Alaska – Quinnipiac women's volleyball's freshman middle hitter Allison Leigh (Palmer, Alaska) was recently featured in her hometown Alaska Sports Blog. The standout Bobcat rookie has made an immediate impact with her new team all the while doing so far away from home.

In a writeup by the blog's fou nder, Van Williams, Leigh is featured for her stellar play at the net this season for Quinnipiac. She currently leads all MAAC players in solo blocks (20) and blocks per set and is average (1.14) and is second in total blocks (48) through 12 matches this season. Leigh is currently on-pace to obliterate the single-season program record for blocks as she is only 40 away from supplanting herself in the record books.

The first Alaskan ever to lace it up for the Bobcats, Leigh came to Quinnipiac with quite the high school resume back home. She finished her career with 1079 kills in 298 career sets and finished her time at Colony High School with a hitting percentage of .312. Her imposing 6-foot-3 frame helped her become a force at the net as she tallied 291 career blocks with 210 of which being solo blocks.
