Allmandinger finds new life with Eagles

Megan Allmandinger figured her college volleyball career was over last winter when she transferred from Grand View University to Kirkwood after one semester.

Kirkwood Coach Jill Williams invited Allmandinger to join the Eagles once she learned the Linn-Mar grad was on campus, but it was a non-starter.

"She asked me to play and I said no," Allmandinger related Tuesday night. "And then a couple of months later I changed my mind and I was like, 'Yeah, I think I want to play.' And here I am."

Allmandinger, a 6-foot-1 middle blocker and outside hitter, has become an important piece of the puzzle for the seventh-ranked Eagles with her size, power and blocks.

Kirkwood raised its record to 21-2 Tuesday with a 25-19, 25-19, 25-23 victory over Marshalltown at Johnson Hall with another typically balanced attack.

Lueck helps No. 7 Eagles soar

Halle Lueck has been a Kirkwood kid for a long time.

She grew up in the Kirkwood neighborhood as a student in the College Community (Cedar Rapids Prairie) School Sistrict. And her mother, Lynn, is the office manager for the Kirkwood athletic department at Johnson Hall, so Halle knows her way around the gym.

Now Lueck is a top-notch athlete at Kirkwood Community College as a prominent member of the seventh-ranked volleyball team. She leads all players in the ICCAC conference in assists and ranks seventh in the nation in Division II, averaging more than 10 assists per set on the team that's filled with heavy hitters.

Lueck had offers from NCAA Division III colleges and from Upper Iowa, an NCAA Division II school, but she was confident Kirkwood was the right place to begin her college experience this year.
