VUVB Sign Alison Smith to 2018 Recruiting Class

Vincennes, IN – The Vincennes University Volleyball program announced this week the signing of Alison Smith. Smith is a product of Oakland High School in Illinois. Oakland combines with 2 other schools (Shiloh and Kansas) to form the Tri-County Titans.

Alison is the daughter of David and Sherry Smith and is a 5-foot 11 middle blocker/outside hitter, who plans to major in Elementary Education, is a High Honors student and a member of the National Honors Society. Smith was a Unanimous First Team All-Conference (Little Oak Valley Conference) selection, was Team MVP, and was selected to the St. Anthony All-Tournament team. Last season Smith led the Titans to a 27 – 9 record, finishing 9 – 0 in conference matches. Tri-County won both the Little Oak Valley Conference and Regional Championships as well as playing in the Sectional Championship match. In 2017, Alison recorded 355 kills, leading both her team and area. She finished with a .308 hitting percentage, with 47 aces (led team), 188 digs and 46 blocks.

Tri-County Coach Crystal Buckler said, “I am so thankful to have been a part of coaching Ali. I have been her high school coach for the past 3 years. Not only was I able to watch Ali grow as an individual but also become an outstanding volleyball player. She has developed tremendously over these 3 year. Ali helped lead us to sectional championship game. She was a player who I knew that I could just look at and she would know it was time to step up and get her team going. She is a coachable player who was always up for new ideas to help develop her as a player and to better her teammates. I am beyond proud of Ali and her accomplishments. She is a player that I can always look back on and say that I watched her become a Division I player. She will be a huge asset to the Vincennes team and they will be extremely happy on what she will be able to bring to the court.”

VUVB coach Gary Sien added, “We have had a tremendous recruiting season thus far and Alison is a big one for us! She brings extensive high-level club experience and was heavily recruited. Alison possesses a huge arm swing and is capable of playing in all 6 rotations, a difficult position to recruit for at any level. We expect her to be a “get to” hitter, bailing us out in the midst of a tight match. We will work on her shot selection as well as expanding her ability to hit off of different zones at the net. We also expect Alison to contribute in the back court with her consistent first contact skills and tough serve. Above all, we want her to demonstrate leadership abilities as she will be part of a very young, incoming team.”
