Background Information: Craig is a sophomore libero on this year’s Lady Bucs Volleyball team and a returning varsity letter-winner from the 2014 season. She has truly come into her own over the past year and during the off season. She has worked tirelessly to perfect her skill set and improve on her awareness to read the court at a very high rate. She always performs with a lead by example attitude and her work ethic assists not only with her development while she becomes an exceptional player and teammate, but permits her the knowledge and confidence to grow into a seasoned defensive specialist. Craig is a scholar athlete and her work ethic extends off the court as much as on the court. She has experienced success with all of her extra-curricular activities, as a part of the volleyball team and a former member of the 2–time WPIAL Champion Cheer Squad at Chartiers–Houston. Craig’s dedication to the program will assist in the growth and continued success of the program and looks to continue her career into her collegiate life.
Quotes from Chartiers-Houston coach Sean Cleary: "Allison is the type of player that makes me love to coach. She comes into the gym every day and leaves everything on the floor while leaving the past behind her, she understands that her best is in front of her and she looks to work as long as is necessary to achieve the goals that the coaching staff set for her each day. Allison is always willing to stay until the established goal is accomplished and most times she asks to stay after to work even more on her skill sets. Allison makes the coaching staff’s job easier because of her drive for success and her ability to not only push herself to new heights, but her desire to support and help in the development of her teammates. Allison is our defensive leader and one of the reasons why this program will experience continued success for the future."
