Each week (Monday-Friday) leading up to the MHSAA Volleyball Semifinals and Finals, the Battle Creek Enquirer will count down the top five players from the city volleyball programs, revealing the ‘Greatest of All Time’ (G.O.A.T.) each Friday. Then fans will have an opportunity to vote for who they think is the G.O.A.T. at each school.


3. Veronica Armstrong – Class of 2004

In her four-year varsity career, Armstrong grew in both height and skill to become a force at the net. Paired with classmate Lauren Frost, the 6-foot-1 outside hitter gave the Bearcats one of the most formidable 1-2 combos in Class A during a senior season in which she tallied 578 kills and a team-best 635 digs. That 2004 season also saw Battle Creek Central win a district title while matching the program record for wins in a season at 54. Armstrong finished with 1,390 career kills (2.9 per game) while earning All-City and All-League honors as a senior. She continued to blossom as a player at Michigan Tech University, where she was a three-time All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection and ranks in the top 10 for the Huskies in career kills with 1,132 over four seasons.

What the panel said: “A strong athlete who used her height to her advantage and continued to develop.”
