Wauseon senior Lexi Sauber has signed to continue her volleyball career at Bowling Green State University.
Sauber was named back-to-back Northwest Ohio Athletic League Player of the Year her junior and senior seasons. She led the Indians to their first NWOAL title in 25 years.
“Lexi is a strong, athletic, and very competitive middle who plays high above the net and loves to block,” Bowling Green State University Coach Danijela Tomic said. “She has many leadership traits that helped her be a go-to player and a leader on her high school and club teams.”
Also joining the program as a freshman in 2019 will be Madelynn Luebcke of Stevensville, Mich.
“We are thrilled to officially welcome Madelynn and Lexi to our Falcon family,” Tomic said. “They both come from great families who installed character traits that we look for in our players. They played for competitive and successful high schools and clubs, and know how to win.”
Sauber is the daughter of Bowling Green alumni Dave and Andrea Sauber. Dave was a member of the Falcons’ football team during his years as an undergrad.
