Walter has finished in the top 50 in Division II in aces per set the last two seasons. Her 81 in a season in 2009 is a Lake Erie single season school record.
With 147 aces in her career, Walter is just four shy of the Lake Erie career record and could reach that mark tonight with a road match at Ohio Dominican University tonight at 7:00 p.m.
