Morin joins pro volleyball team

April 5, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Traci Morin, who completed her volleyball career at Western Michigan University in 1999, began this January as a member of VC Tirol Garten Hauer, a professional volleyball team in Tirol, Austria.

The 6-foot, 2-inch middle blocker holds a number of Bronco records. Her .345 career hitting percentage is second-highest all-time in both the Mid-American Conference and at WMU. She completed her collegiate career by helping her team post a 25-win season and earn a berth in the MAC championship match. In 1999, Morin was named co-most-valuable-player for the Broncos and was selected to the All-MAC First Team, to the MAC All-Tournament Team and to the United States National A-2 Team.

Morin graduated from WMU in 2001 with a major in physical education and a minor in English.
