Before Tuesday’s MIAA opener against Albion at the Van Noord Arena, Calvin head coach Amber Warners was honored for her 200th win at Calvin, a victory over Carnegie-Mellon in last year’s Ohio Northern tournament.
After the short ceremony, Warners was quick to give out pointers to her team in a three-set win over the Britons. That attention to detail is a large reason for Warners’ tremendous success in the game of volleyball.
