Tribune photo by Zach Spicer / Chelsea Hendrix hits the ball over Abby Hackman, left, and Briley Abraham as Mariah Gray, far left, looks on during Thursday's session of volleyball camp at Immanuel Lutheran School. Hendrix, a former ILS student and 2009 graduate of Seymour High School, and Gray are members of the University of the Cumberlands volleyball team.
Chelsea Hendrix was a two-time most valuable player in volleyball at Seymour High School, and she earned first team all-conference twice and was named libero of the week twice while playing for University of the Cumberlands.
Someday, Kaelen Eglen would like to have those honors, too.
“I’m going to probably play volleyball the rest of my life on through college,” the Immanuel Lutheran School student said. “I think it would be a really good experience to play with the college girls, and it’s really fun to play with them.”
Today is the fourth and final day of volleyball camp at Immanuel Lutheran School, and this marks the second straight year Hendrix has returned to her roots to lead a volleyball camp. Hendrix attended ILS before heading to SHS, where she played volleyball all four years until graduating in 2009.
In the fall, Hendrix will be in her final season at University of the Cumberlands, which is an NAIA school in Williamsburg, Ky., that is a member of the Mid-South Conference.
