Patriots Sign Toledo Volleyball Player

    FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University women’s volleyball coach Sonny Kirkpatrick has announced the signing of Amy Witko of Toledo, Ohio, to national letter of intent during the recent early signing period.

    Witko, a 5-8 outside hitter and defensive specialist, is a senior at Notre Dame Academy, where she plays for coach Jeff Johnson. 

    As a senior, she set a school record with 164 digs, while compiling a .243 hitting percentage with 154 kills, 28 service aces, and 17 total blocks.  In 2004, she earned second-team District 7 Coaches Association (Division I) honors, while gaining first-team Toledo City League recognition for the second consecutive year.

    She was an honorable mention TCL selection in 2002.

    She is also a four-year member of the prestigious Toledo Volleyball Club.

    “Amy is an outstanding player who does a number of wonderful things on the volleyball court,” said Kirkpatrick.  “She will add a new dynamic to our squad, both with her playing ability and personality.”

    Francis Marion recently completed its most successful season since 1999 with a 21-14 record and a third-place finish during the Peach Belt Conference regular season.  The 2004 Patriot roster did not include any seniors.
