“Head coach Brandon Rosenthal and the Lipscomb Volleyball program announced the signing of four standouts during the early signing period on Wednesday:
Addi is an absolute fantastic prospect coming out of Kansas City, an area that we know extremely well. She has really come on to the scene the last couple of years and has proved to be a dominant player, and one that can play multiple positions. We see her as somebody that can jump right in and compete for that starting position on the right side immediately. Early on in the process, we really coveted her ability to play in multiple spots. But as the recruiting went on, it became more and more evident that her best position to get kills at a high rate is on the right side. I believe she will be the same caliber of player as Megan Kuper, one that can play six rotations. It will be fun to see as she’s fairly young in the club world. She is also a fabulous student both on and off the court. She continues to grow within the community and her leadership ability. We are extremely excited to be in a position to have Addi. At the height of recruiting, her name was one that was passed around as one that her stock was continuing to grow, and it’s been fun to see her game rise to that occasion.”

After an incredible back-and-forth battle between two of eight-man football’s top teams, Hunter and Nate met at midfield and shared a moment of prayer and mutual admiration.
