Carroll Volleyball Adds Third Signee for 2015

Posted: Updated:

Head volleyball Carroll College coach Maureen Boyle has signed Bishop Kelly High School (Boise, Idaho) outside hitter Emily Sullivan to a national letter of intent.

The 6-0 all-state performer attended Whitefish High School for her freshmen and sophomore year, after which she transferred to Bishop Kelly to finish out her high school career.

“She is a workhorse, she strives to get better and wants to be coached. I've been watching her for a few years through club and high school at Bishop Kelly. She is always pushing to make her team better,” Boyle said. “I am excited to have the chance to coach her.”

She was a four-time all-conference team member and was the 2014 Conference MVP. She also led her team to a second-place finish at the state tournament, Bishop Kelly's highest-ever finish.

Along with Volleyball she was also a state champion swimmer in 2012 in the breaststroke and freestyle.

Academically she had a strong career with a 3.94 GPA and academic all-state honors all four years.

“I have always had a good connection to Montana and I cannot wait to return for the next four years,” Sullivan said. “Carroll's academic excellence, small class sizes, beautiful campus, community involvement and community support of the school and athletics all stood out to me during the recruiting process.”

The connection she felt to her future teammates also was a big draw for Sullivan.

“I loved the positive team chemistry and connection between the girls,” she said. “The support of the coaches was also big. They will push and strengthen me athletically and socially.”

Sullivan is the third signee for Boyle. Helena products Rayna Pilgeram (Capital) and Jenna Starke (Helena High) have both committed to play for the Saints starting in 2015.
