COLUMBIANA OH- The name Emch rings loud in the tradition of Crestview Volleyball. Over the last decade there’s a good bet you’d find someone named Emch patrolling the net for Coach Auer’s Rebels.  If opponents thought they were done with the name, they would be sorely mistaken. Last season Abbey Emch entered the scene, and instantly showed everyone exactly what a life of learning from older Emch’s made someone capable of. Now, after a year of experience Abbey strides into her sophomore season as one of the best players in the area. No arguments.

The numbers don’t lie when you check out Abbey’s stats on the season. Emch holds the team lead in kills with 271. Leading the team in kills is particularly impressive as a middle blocker. In most programs outside hitters get set a lot more than middles. It’s extremely tough to set a middle blocker if you’re not in system, and the fact that Emch is not only a statement about her, but also the defense behind her that makes it easy for the Rebels setters to get her the ball.  Emch is also hitting efficiently coming in to the day with a hitting percentage of .488.  Hitting percentage is calculated by subtracting errors from kills, and putting them over total attacks. Emch leads the team in attacks with 455 and has only committed 49 errors on the year.  Emch brings an awesome net presence as well on defense. She has the team lead by far with 56 of the teams 85 blocks.

Emch was able to take the time to join Anthony Hartwig this week for a sit down, and look inside her sophomore season. They also discuss what made coming into this program so easy, what other positions she’d like to play, and much more. Check out the latest Crestview volleyball Player Profile only on YSN!
