McPherson College has announced the recent signing of Stacy Zink of Ellinwood, Kan., to a volleyball letter of intent for the 2009-2010 school year. The 5'10 Zink received honorable mention All-Mid-Central AA honors this past fall after which she was named Ellinwood's most valuable player.

Joining Stacy for her letter of intent signing were (front) her parents Melanie and Dan Zink, along with (back, left) Ellinwood HS coach Laurie Feist and McPherson College head coach Susan Barton.

A four-year letter winner, Zink was credited with 383 kills, 316 blocks, 15 ace serves, and 105 digs for coach Laurie Feist at Ellinwood High School. Outside the interscholastic season, Zink has played club ball for the Lady Kats and Volleytech the past four years. Stacy is a talented athlete that will help us in the middle with her talent and work ethic, said Susan Barton, McPherson College head coach. I'm looking forward to having her on campus in the fall and getting to work with her every day." Stacy is the daughter of Daniel and Melanie Zink.

Travis worked for Senator Pat Roberts during the election and this picture was taken at a banquet thanking the workers and they could invite family to be there so Tiffany and Edie drove to Topeka to attend.  Last week Travis was hired by the National Republican Party  to be an official while the recount is taking place in Minnesota.  They flew him to St. Paul and provided him with a rental car as he travels from county to county and pay for his hotel.
