SIUE Volleyball Adds Junior College All-American

SIUE Volleyball Adds Junior College All-American

February 6, 2009

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - Southern Illinois University Edwardsville volleyball coach Todd Gober is making the most of his off-season with the addition of junior college All-American Karie Downing (Ottumwa, Iowa).

SIUE Coach Todd Gober said Downing joins the Cougars during the spring season as a sophomore and will begin play next fall with junior eligibility.

"Karie put up some big numbers at the junior college level. We believe she will be able to help us right away at SIUE," said Gober.

Downing was a first team NJCAA Division I All-American this past season at Indian Hills Community College. A 6-foot middle hitter, Downing broke the Indian Hills record for kills with 1,028 and blocks with 328 in two seasons. She also set single-season records for kills (617) and blocks (197) this past fall.
