Ballinger joins 1000/500 club

Blackburn College senior setter Jensen Ballinger recently went over 500 digs for her career in a match at Fontbonne University.

In addition to her 1,094 assists, she is the first Blackburn volleyball player to reach those numbers since 1998. Ballinger, who is from Vincennes, Ind., and attended Lincoln High School there, has the second most career assists cine 1998 at Blackburn. Her 508 digs rank her in the top 10 since 1998.

“Jensen has really been able to adjust well defensively; that has really started to show in matches,” said Blackburn Head Coach Carlos Jiminez. “Her accomplishments are a great statement about her abilities over a four-year period and her success at helping the team.”
