Now that they’ve traded in their Loyola jerseys for masks and gloves, some former Rambler athletes are working on the front lines in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kristen Haggenjos, a 2013 women’s volleyball alumna, and Kevin Emmerich, a 2009 men’s golf alumnus, are just two of many alumni who have gone from battling for wins in the NCAA to battling coronavirus in Midwestern hospitals.

While at Loyola, Emmerich qualified for the Illinois Open Championship during his first year on the golf team. Both he and Haggenjos were also named to the Horizon League’s Honor Roll for multiple semesters.
