With every new season comes new challenges. For the Grand Valley State volleyball team, the first obstacle will be replacing the talent it lost from last year’s exceptional senior class that lead the program to its sixth Final Four appearance.
A handful of lacrosse players gathered on a campus athletic field because it was the only place where they knew they could hang out and shoot on a net.
Five years later, the Grand Valley State indoor box lacrosse club has developed into something those founders never could have imagined, doing so now in the honor of their lost teammate, brother and friend Alexander Aninos.
Last October, Aninos, founding member and respected team leader, was killed in a car accident.
