Volleyball coach Nick Griffin has announced that Claire A'Hearn (Fort Thomas, Ky./Highlands H.S.) has signed a letter of intent to play for the Georgetown Tigers in the fall.A'Hearn, who originally committed to NCAA Div. I Eastern Kentucky, was selected in 2008 and 2009 to the Northern Kentucky Coaches Association All-Opponent Team, garnered 34th District All-Tournament Team in 2009, and was a 2009 Kentucky Coaches Association "Player to Watch." The two-year captain led the Bluebirds in hitting efficiency (.342), blocks per set (1.03) and kills per set (2.53) as a senior.

In the offseason, the 6-foot-1 middle blocker has spent the past five years training and competing with the Northern Kentucky Junior Volleyball Club. Her NKJV teams qualified for the USAV Junior National Championships in 2008 and 2009 by winning the Pioneer Region Bid Tournament. Her 2010 team will conclude the season at the AAU National Championships later this month.

"We are very excited to have Claire joining us this fall," Griffin said. "As someone who loves to train middle blockers, I am eager to begin working with Claire. Like most incoming freshmen, it will take time for her to adjust to our system and the speed of the college game, but I think she is going to really surprise people."

A'Hearn is undecided on her major. She and her parents, Dan and Peggy A'Hearn, are seen above.
