Georgetown College volleyball
coach Nick Griffin
announces the signing of outside hitter Lauren
Schneidtmiller. The Louisville native is a four-year letterwinner and
three-year starter for Mercy Academy.
"Lauren is a tremendous
addition to our 2012 class," Griffin said. "Her athleticism, speed and
competitiveness will allow her to challenge as both an outside hitter and
Mercy was 143-20 during her
four years along with two Kentucky State Championships in 2008 and 2009 and a
2010 runner-up finish. For three of her four seasons, Mercy finished ranked by
Prepvolleyball.com in the Top 20 nationally.
Schneidtmiller also had
individual success throughout high school - 2011 All-Catholic Volleyball First
Team, 2011 All-State Second Team, 2010 All-State Honorable Mention, two-time
All-Region Team, and 2010 Catholic Schools Excellence Award.
Throughout her club career, she
played on the elite teams for Union (2012) and MAVA (2006-2011) where her teams
finished in the Top 20 in the Open Division of the AAU National Championships
every year. This season her Union team placed in the Top 5 at the JVA Mideast
Schneidtmiller is no stranger
to collegiate athletics either. She has an older sister who plays field hockey
for University of Louisville. Two of her cousins were All-American volleyball
players at Western Kentucky University and University of Illinois.
"She has succeeded at the
highest levels throughout her high school and club careers and carries a
swagger that is infectious to those around her," Griffin said.
