The family ties list updated: NCAA athletic daughters/sisters/cousins

0
The Van Winden family: Adlee, Kelly, James and Torrey

Most of the information here was supplied by conference and college sports information directors. All Division I women’s volleyball conference SIDs were contacted for this presentation. The original list was published Oct. 27, 2016.

We knew we would hear from you and we got emails, Tweets, postings on forums, texts and phone calls about ones we missed. So here is the list with plenty of new information updated Nov. 12, 2016.

As we said before, there’s no way to get them all, but if you see any mistakes, know of anyone who should be included or have more information for those on the list, please email lee@VolleyballMag.com.

We will hope to update this list again before the end of the 2016 season.
