Even though the season has ended, it hasn't stops the Athena girls from carrying on playing. Whether it is the grass of Victoria Park, Ashcombe's summer tournament or the sand of the Loughborough Uni beach courts, there is always an opportunity to play more volleyball.
Leicester Athena celebrated the end of their second ever season with an Awards Night and Annual General Meeting at Peter's Pizzeria in Leicester.
The night was a chance to look back at what we have achieved in the past year and award people for their hard work as well as look forward to the new season and start to plan.
Congratulations to the following people:
Regional league squad
Player's Player of the Year: Adela Romero
Most Improved Player: Faye Rigkou

And a special mention for Petra Szőllősyová for being named DMU's Sportswoman of the Year. Also awards were handed out to Kamila (this year's most broken bunny), Sarah (love Bunny) and PanPan (Best Supporter).
