Being blessed with the perfect combination of height and elite skills has allowed Benjamin Logan’s Alex Thompson the opportunity to take her volleyball career to the next level.

The BL senior signed a letter of intent Thursday to play volleyball at Queens University, a Division II program in Charlotte, N.C.

“Alex is a phenomenal athlete,” said Ben Logan head coach Allison Reule. “She moves well, jumps well and is quick with her feet. Her blocking is her biggest asset and Queens recognized that.

“She is a good hitter as well. She has learned to control and place her shots. It’s not always about power, you have to be able to place the ball. Alex has done a great job with that aspect of the game. Queens is getting a great athlete. They will train her and make her an even better player.”
