Sabrina Groce, DeKalb, has signed a letter of intent to play volleyball for Kishwaukee College in the Fall 2019 school year. She currently attends Cornerstone Christian Academy in Sycamore. Groce is a DeKalb native and has played volleyball since she was in seventh grade. She is entering her sixth club season at Top Flight Volleyball Club, where she also helps coach younger players.
Groce is a 5’11” all around outside hitter known for high energy, big hits, strong back row support, and fierce determination. She has been awarded MPV, all conference, and all tournament recognition as well as academic athlete honors throughout her high school career.
After a number of invitations to play for colleges on the east coast, upper Michigan, Kentucky, South Carolina, and throughout Illinois, Groce made the decision to stay local and join the Kish College Kougars volleyball team. “I am excited to be part of her [Coach Bodmer’s] vision for the Kougars and to play with some really great athletes on the team.” said Groce.
One reason Groce chose Kish was for the College’s major offerings. Groce plans to pursue the criminal justice program, as she is interested in criminal forensics. She said, “None of the other schools that I was talking with had the kind of hands-on forensic criminology program that Kish has and it was just what I was looking for. I found the perfect fit for me in athletics and academics.”
Groce will begin working out with her new teammates at Kish after she completes her final club season. She said, “College volleyball has always been my dream and I am excited to get started at Kishwaukee College.”
