HUNTINGTON, Ind. - The Huntington University volleyball team has added a local product to its roster for next season with the signing of Huntington North High School standout Josie Beaver.
This past season Beaver dominated the net, tallying 196 kills and 69 blocks, 30 of which were solo, to guide her team to a 22-11 record and earn NCC First Team All-Conference honors. It marks her fourth consecutive All-Conference award.
For her career, the 5-10 middle hitter has amassed 711 kills and 284 blocks as a four-year starter for the Vikings.
HNHS Coach Jessica Fuller has nothing but good to say about Beaver’s career in red and black, “It has been an honor to have coached Josie. She is an all-around great gal. Josie led our team in blocks and was second in kills.
“Just her presence on the court was enough to throw off other teams. The respect she has for the game and her willingness to learn is every coach’s dream to have instilled in their players. Words cannot describe how proud I am of her and cannot wait to see what her future holds.”
HU volleyball coach Amy Settle looks forward to Beaver’s contribution to the Forester program, “HU volleyball is excited to welcome Josie Beaver to our program. She is a talented athlete who will be instrumental in continuing our rise in the conference.
“We are especially proud that she is from the Huntington community. We look forward to Josie’s contributions and leadership on and off the court. She is a positive force that makes everyone else around her better.”
Beaver is the daughter of Mike and Rhonda Beaver of Huntington, Ind.
