Hickory, NC— Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC) sophomore volleyball player Bre Myers signed to continue her four-year career on Wednesday (Feb. 19) back near her home. Myers is heading to Mars Hill University — she became the 30th signee with four-year schools in Catawba Valley volleyball program history.
One of three captains for the Red Hawks this past fall, Myers played in 33 matches this past fall for the Red Hawks, tallying 429 digs, 129 assists and 27 aces from her libero position. The Weaverville native finished her Catawba Valley career with 483 digs, 129 assists and 32 aces.
Signing to play at the four-year level has always been Myers’ goal, and with hard work and help from the Red Hawks’ program that ambition became a reality on Wednesday.
“It’s a big deal,” Myers said of the signing. “I came to CVCC to get to the next level, so it’s a big accomplishment for me and for CVCC getting me to the next level. Mars Hill is near my hometown. It’ll be good going back home and playing around people that I already know.”
She was one of two athletes responsible for guiding the Red Hawks to a flawless conference record without surrendering a single set in Region 10 matches. CVCC also made a ninth NJCAA volleyball national tournament appearance.
