Local Olympian visits Volleyball Club

Olympic gold medalist Reid Priddy visited the Richmond Volleyball Club Sept. 10 for a meet-and-greet session with admiring members, who waited in long lines to have their autographs and pictures taken with the star player on the men’s national volleyball team.

Among the fans who flocked to RVC to visit with Priddy were members of the Glen Allen High School girls volleyball team, above (left to right – Emma Gathel, Kirsten Kennedy, Emily Riggin, Erin Hedrick, Shea Yeager, Courtney Wright, Amanda Garrett) and Ken and Christine Lu, with five-week-old Sloane.
