Criswell & Robben sign with Cincinnati State

Cincinnati State head volleyball coach Kristy Parrill continued her pursuit to improving the team for 2014 with the recent additions of Courtney Criswell & Rebecca Robben.

Criswell comes to Cincinnati State after a successful senior season at McAuley High School. A 5’10 RS, Criswell tallied 100 kills, 57 blocks and a .415%. Academically, Criswell was an honor roll student throughout her 4 years at McAuley and plans on majoring in Radiology at Cincinnati State in the fall.

Robben, a DS from Cleves, Ohio, transfers to Cincinnati State after spending a semester at Cleveland State University. After an impressive high school career at Harrison, Robben chose to attend Cleveland State but was unable to play due to injury. 

While at Harrison, Robben was a four-year varsity starter. She was named First Team All-League as a sophomore, junior and senior and led her team to two Fort Ancient Valley Conference championships. In 2013, Robben was selected to participate in the Senior Showcase.

Cincinnati State, which finished with an 11-23 record in its inaugural season, will attempt to take the next step to contending for a region title. Coach Parrill looks forward to seeing her revamped team in action.

“We have two players who can make an impact right away,” Parrill says. “Rebecca has a winning pedigree and Div. I talent. Courtney gives us height and is a significant addition to our attacking style. It will be an exciting 2014 with these two on the team."

Coach Parrill adds three new players for 2014 season

 

With the program’s first year coming to an end last month, Cincinnati State head volleyball coach Kristy Parrill spent little time working towards building her 2014 roster with the recent signings of Hannah Flickinger and sisters Claire & Faith Gerhardstein.

 

 

Flickinger, who will graduate from Seton High School in the spring, is expected to give the Surge a boost defensively. She will team up with another former Seton graduate in Carly Henkenberns, who will return to the team as a sophomore after leading the Surge in digs this past season.

 

 

The Gerhardstein sisters will projected to improve Cincinnati State’s offensive attack. As seniors at Scott High School, they helped lead the team to a district title and a regional runner up finish. Claire finished the season with 198 kills, 38 digs and 68 blocks. Faith recorded 128 kills, 27 aces, 46 digs and 67 blocks.

 

 

Cincinnati State, which finished with a 11-23 record in its inaugural season, will attempt to take the next step to contending for a region title. Coach Parrill, who was hired in June, looks forward to a full off season of recruiting.

 

 

“We got the three players we really wanted from the start,” Parrill says. “All three girls can come in and make an impact for us as freshman. I am excited to see what the future holds for this team in 2014 as we continue our recruiting process throughout the next few months.”

Cincinnati State adds volleyball to varsity sports program

Cincinnati State will add women’s volleyball to its intercollegiate sports program, beginning with the 2013 season.

 

“Volleyball is a very popular sport that is played at a very high level in the Greater Cincinnati area,” stated athletic director Tom Hathaway.  “We look forward to capitalizing on the high school and club talent in our area and expect to quickly build a program that will compete among the best in our conference and region, as our other teams do.”

 

A head coach shall be appointed shortly and recruiting shall commence immediately.  Cincinnati State will offer athletic scholarships in volleyball.  Interested high school seniors should go to the Cincinnati State web site for recruiting information.

 

“There is no question that we have a lot of work to do in a short period of time, but I am confident that, with the support of our volleyball community, we will be ready for the start of the season,” stated Hathaway.

 

Volleyball joins the Cincinnati State intercollegiate program that includes men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and men’s golf.  Those existing teams have made a total of seven appearances in the NJCAA national championships over the past four years.

 

Adding volleyball became attractive to Cincinnati State following last summer’s renovation of the school’s gym.  Additionally, the college annually receives dozens of inquiries from high school seniors interested in playing the sport.

 

Cincinnati area high schools have won 29 girls volleyball state championships, and the area club volleyball programs are similarly successful.
