“We are excited that Ali is going to be joining our volleyball program and campus next fall,” commented head coach Kyle Van Den Bosch. “Ali was a key player for a team that won back-to-back state championships and is an excellent fit for our program. She is an outstanding blocker and will provide great length and depth at the middle hitter position. Ali has a passion for Christ and for her teammates and she will be a blessing to our team and to our campus.”
