In Memoriam – Kristye Hall Chastang
Alabama Volleyball alumna Kristye Hall Chastang lost her battle with cancer today. When Alabama restarted its volleyball program in 1989, Hall was part of the first recruiting class, and she would put up single-season and career numbers for kills that still rank in the Top 10 in Alabama history. After her volleyball days were over, Hall had a long career as a physical therapist, and founded Buckaroo Barn in Bay Minette, where she provided hippotherapy to special needs patients. Hall has two children who have gone on to play collegiate volleyball.
For the second straight week, Josh Jacobs set new career highs in both rushing yards and yards from scrimmage. Jacobs finished with 154 yards rushing and 193 yards from scrimmage.
Jared Mayden and Robert Foster both were signed to practice squads today after having been released from Injured Reserve with injury settlements. Mayden, previously with the Philadelphia Eagles, was signed by the Buffalo Bills. Foster, who had previously received an injury settlement from the New York Giants, re-signed with the Giants after waiting the mandated time period for settlements.
John Petty and Jaden Shackelford were both waived today, but the New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder, respectively. Both were on Exhibit 10 camp deals, and the waiver is a precursor to including the players on the teams’ G League rosters.
Alabama Track & Field athlete Sydney Milani was invited to try out for the US Women’s Bobsled team in Colorado Springs recently.
