LIVONIA – Inspired by Livonia volleyball coach Kristen Hierlwimmer’s sister – Karen Rohr Schuster – who was celebrating 13 years, cancer free, following her clear mammogram Tuesday afternoon, the Lady Bulldogs went out and swept past visiting Dansville, earning the LCAA D-I title at the Tom Downey Gymnasium.
Rohr Schuster, a 1979 Bulldogs’ graduate and former volleyball player, was Livonia’s breast cancer spotlight on Tuesday.
