GREENSBORO, NC – UNC Greensboro's volleyball team added Olivia Humphries to its roster during the early signing period, announced today by head coach Shawn Garus.
Humphries, a middle blocker from Charlotte, NC, has earned four varsity letters for coach Betty Berry at Myers Park High School. Berry is a former Spartan herself, as she played on the volleyball team for UNCG in the late 1970s. Humphries was named to the all-conference team after her junior and senior seasons. She was also named the conference player of the year and to the conference senior all-star team for her efforts during her senior year.
"I am excited to be adding Olivia to our program," Garus said. "She is one of the elite players in the state, and we're looking forward to her playing for the Spartans. Olivia is long, lean and moves well on the court. I think she fits really well with our returning players."
This past season, UNCG went 26-10 and finished second in the North Division of the Southern Conference. Kayren Finney and Branagan Fuller were named first-team All-SoCon, while Kaitlyn Nortz was named to the second-team. Junior Catherine Hanners also had a great season as she finished tied for fourth nationally with 0.62 aces per set.
