Crown Point senior Emma Ogden has committed to Quinnipiac, a Connecticut school in the Northeast Conference.

Ogden led the Bulldogs with 131 assists and added 16 aces last season. She also had 24 kills and 54 digs.

Quinnipiac was under the direction of new coach Kris Czaplinski last season, finishing 2-23 and 1-15 in the NEC.

In 2010, under then-coach Robin Lamott Sparks, a Lake Central grad, the Quinnipiac volleyball team won a federal Title IX lawsuit when the school tried to replace volleyball with cheer leading as a varsity sport. Last week, the university officially settled the lawsuit, agreeing to keep volleyball as a varsity sport and add scholarships and improve facilities for women's athletics.
