Heller to join Lady Flames beach volleyball team in 2017-18
June 3, 2017 | Lynchburg, Va.
Liberty University's women's beach volleyball team recently received a commitment from Liberty Christian Academy indoor volleyball player Hannah Heller, who also plays for the Heart Of Virginia (HOV) Volleyball Club travel team.
"I chose Liberty because I love the campus, I love the atmosphere, and I love to play beach volleyball," Heller said. "I'm so pumped to play for LU next year."
Liberty Head Coach Rachel Willis shares Heller's enthusiasm and is looking forward to see her develop as a player with her future Lady Flames teammates.
"We're really excited to have Hannah," she said. "She's been around since I started working with the program. We started a beach league and Hannah was coming out in the summer. I've known her the last couple of years and it's been fun to watch her learn and grow and get better as a volleyball player and we think she's going to make a real solid contribution to our team next year."
Heller, who graduated from LCA last Saturday, plans to stay active in the sport over the summer and to work hard to improve her outdoor game.
"My expectations for this year are to get a lot better than I am now," she said. "It's a big transition from indoor to beach and I'm so excited to see where God leads me through all of this."
