Senior volleyball standout Whitney Ostrander is the female Raider of the Month for September. Ostrander is one of the premier players in Region 3, and she has been one of FM’s key players.
Ostrander was named an all-conference player while leading the 2013 team. This year, after 11 matches (in which the team went 10-1) she has posted 127 kills and 63 blocks. She is currently ranked #3 in the region in blocks per set with a mark of 1.70.
She played what Head Coach Rachael Salvione called her biggest match of the season to date in pod play on the final weekend of September. The Lady Raiders won all three matches that day, but against Onondaga CC they had to win the final three sets. Ostrander led the way with 15 kills and 9 blocks in winning that tense, five-set match.
Ostrander was also named Co-Captain by her teammates, which speaks highly of their respect for her as a leader.
