Firestone senior volleyball player Gretchen Von Koenig has accepted a full athletic scholarship to further her athletic and academic career at New Jersey Institute of Technology, a Division I school in Newark, N.J.
Von Koening, the City Series Player of the Year last season, said she will major in architecture.
``I really loved the school and I can't wait to start there,'' Von Koenig said. ``The academic standards are high, there is diversity, like there is here at Firestone and it's one of the top 25 schools for my major.
``Plus, being minutes away from Manhattan is awesome,'' she said. ``When it comes to my major, you can't get more connected than that.''
