Kendal Dirkin, a 2008 graduate of OPRF High School, closed out her college volleyball career in Jersey City, N.J. last weekend at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships.
Dirkin, a four-year starter for NCCA Division I Fairfield University, was named All-conference First Team. Dirkin led the MAAC in hitting percentage with .348.
Fairfield defeated conference arch-rival Siena College in the semifinal of the MAAC Championship game in five sets. Fairfield lost in four sets to top- seeded Niagara University in the final after losing a critical third set 34-32.
Dirkin also repeated as an All-conference Academic Team selection.
