MCC libero player headed to Mo. Western after one year
After one year of volleyball at McCook Community College, Eisa Mondragon has accepted a scholarship at Missouri Western State University, an NCAA Division II school, in St. Joseph, Mo.
Mondagon, a 5-3 libero from Topeka, Kan, was planning on returning to McCook this fall, but according to MCC Coach Hayley Kobza, another window of opportunity opened up. After a visit and many conversations with the coach and the players, Mondragon decided to continue her education and volleyball endeavors at the next level in Missouri where she plans to study Elementary Education.
“I’m really going to miss all the relationships I have built with the staff and the students,” she said.
She said she is excited about the opportunity to play in the MIAA, one of the most competitive conferences in the nation.
“I just thank all my former teammates at MCC for creating so many memories with me,” she said. “We’ve created lifelong friendships.”
Mondragon played in 23 matches as a freshman and was third on the team with 217 digs and second with 2.97 digs per set. She had 47 assists and 17 serving aces.
“Eisa was a player that brought a fun vibe to the court and gave the team that drive to be better,” said Kobza. “She is going to do big things at Missouri Western and I can’t wait to see what she brings to that team.”
