2016: Finished out a stellar three-year career…played in every match except the final one, which she missed due to injury…took on a larger leadership role, as she served as the only captain older than a sophomore…finished second on the team in kills with 206…went over 10 kills on seven occasions…twice posted season-highs of 14…was outstanding in her final match, as she had 13 kills and led the team in comebacks at the end of two sets…finished her career in sixth (652) on the all-time kills list…also finishes eighth in career attack percentage…played a big role defensively for the team as well…led the team in assisted blocks and total blocks with 38 and 45 respectively…also posted 101 digs, which was seventh on the team…will be missed by the team and the staff.

2015: Took on a much larger role in her junior season and responded with a top notch season…missed two matches due to injuries but played in every other match and set…tops on the team in kills with 235, which was also good for 13th in the conference, and kills per set with 2.55…had 10 or more kills in 10 matches during the year…had a season-high 16 kills against Ferrum College, and recorded 10 total blocks for one of her two double-doubles…also had 15 in the win over Hollins, and was named to the Averett University Cougar Classic All-Tournament Team…had 15 in the win over Hollins University later on in the year…dug double-digit attacks three times, including 12 in the must-win Guilford match, where she also had 13 kills…156 digs was fourth on the team…will look to take on an even larger role as a senior.

2014: Had a great season after transferring into Randolph…played in 26 matches, seeing time in 97 sets during those matches…third on the team with 211 kills…had double-digit kills in nine separate matches…had a career-high of 16 kills in the win over Methodist University…showed off her defensive abilities with 63 digs…added 55 total blocks, which was the third highest total on the team…after losing several key players up front to graduation, she will look to take on a larger role both on and off the court.

Before Randolph: Transfer from NAIA's Brenau...played in 57 sets...had 33 kills...four assists...four-year player and two-year starter for Hillcrest...two-time state champion (2011 and 2012)...all-region right side.

Personal: Daughter of Jose and Mary...has two younger siblings, Zack and Sam...history major.
