TERRE HAUTE, IND. – Indiana State volleyball coach Traci Dahl has announced that Danielle McCormick has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete for the Indiana State Sycamores starting this fall.
McCormick is a 6-foot-2-inch outside hitter out of Notre Dame Prep in Pontiac, Mich., where she lettered all four years.
“Danielle is a very versatile player that can play in the middle or at the pin,” Dahl said. “She led her team to a state championship and comes to Indiana State with winning traditions. She is a person of high character and will be a great addition to the ISU Volleyball family. She will definitely be in a position to compete for a spot on the court this year. I am looking forward to seeing her progress once she is at the college level.”
McCormick was a first team All-State selection in 2013 and a third team selection in 2012. She has also been an Honorable Mention All-American, All League, All Region, and All Catholic selection during her high school career. McCormick was named Most Improved in 2012, and received the “Fighting Irish” Award and Spirit/Leadership Award in 2013.
The future Sycamore comes from an athletic family. Her father, Tim, played basketball at Michigan (1980-84) and her uncle, Mike, played basketball at Kent State (1984-1988). She also has an older brother, Kellen, who is currently on the Western Michigan basketball team.
In 407 sets played at Notre Dame Prep, McCormick accumulated 1,246 kills (3.1 kills per set) with a .289 hitting percentage. She also had 203 blocks, 372 digs, and 242 aces during her high school career.
She also competed for Legacy Volleyball Club and for the Michigan Elite Volleyball Academy.
