Carroll Volleyball Announces First Signing of 2014 Recruiting Class

Posted: Updated:

HELENA – Carroll College head volleyball coach Moe Boyle announced the Fighting Saints first signings for the 2014 freshman class.

Marija Nicksic a 6-foot-4 outside hitter from Valparaiso, IN will join Boyle's squad in the fall.

Nicksic is a three-year letter winner in volleyball, was selected All-Conference and All-Area Honorable Mention at Andrean High School.

Nicksic, a captain during her senior season helped Andrean to two regional championships. She also was a member of the Ultimate 16 Gold Team that earned a third place finish at the club national tournament in Atlanta in 2011.

"We are thrilled to have Marija join our team. She will provide us with immediate help up front. She is a very smooth hitter, an excellent student and will be a quick learner – we expect her to contribute right away," Boyle said.

Nicksic has excelled in the classroom with a 4.3 GPA and lends her talents as a graphic editor for the Acropolis student newspaper. She plans on studying history at Carroll.

"I hope to better myself as a volleyball player, student and person as well as experiencing everything Carroll and Helena has to offer," Nicksic said.

Nicksic has two other siblings who play collegiate athletics. Her older brother Pete is a senior forward on the basketball team at Wabash College and her older sister Ana is a setter at Elon University.

Nicksic's height will be much needed as two front line members of the 2013 Carroll team have graduated. Captains Elle Graff and Karla Hellegaard's shoes will need to be filled by returners and newcomers alike.

Carroll College finished fifth in the Frontier Conference this past season with a 9-7 conference record.
