Why I Chose My School: I chose IU Kokomo because it was the perfect fit for me. The small campus atmosphere fits my personality and I will be looking forward to the small classroom sizes where I will be able to take advantage of the more individualized attention. The baseball program is also very exciting; the stadium is brand new and will bring a crowd to every game. I am very excited to be able to work with the very supportive and energetic coaches at IU Kokomo.

How I Want to Get Involved: I plan on interning to be able to increase my experience in the workplace and hopefully open up opportunities for myself.

My Biggest Inspiration: My dad has inspired me the most in my sport because he has pushed me and motivated me to the level where am I today. He would always be able to play catch with me even when his arm wanted to fall off. He has put up with me even after all the bruises and seams the baseballs left imprinted on his body. He has sacrificed so much for me to be the best that I can be; I thank him for that. I would not be here without him.

I Would Like to Thank: I want to thank all of my coaches and teammates who have done so much for me. The Noblesville coaching staff has been instrumental in the development of my work ethic and I would not be at the level I am today without them. Coach Small has always been my go-to coach since freshman year and I know he will continue to be that for me; he is a great guy. Also, Coach Keever has been very helpful in the process. I would not be where I am today without any of them. But most importantly, I want to thank my family and especially my parents. They have been through so much for me with traveling and making sacrifices to be able to put me in the best position possible. They are my role models in my life and I strive to be like them every day. Thank you, Mom and Dad.

I also knew I wanted to go to a school that would help me strengthen my faith, once again Detroit Mercy was that school. I am so excited and humbled to be able to attend a school that I am not only able to get a great education from, but also continue to play the sport I love.

How I Want to Get Involved: Indianapolis Zoo Internship

My Biggest Inspiration: My travel ball head coach Mike Ramsey has inspired me to be the player I am today. He has pushed me in every part of the game, mental and physical. He expects me to play at a high level and expects nothing less. I can’t thank him enough for always believing in me and never giving up on me. I’ve known him for many years and it will be very strange in college not to hear him yelling at me from the dugout. Every moment is a coachable moment to him, he knows so much about the game and I am always learning new things from him. Thank you so much, Coach Ramsey, for all you do, I wouldn’t be the player I am without you.

I Would Like to Thank: I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for everything they do for me. They would never hesitate to drive me to any tournaments, practices, or camps. We’ve made many memories on those trips and they will always hold a special place in my heart. I can’t thank them enough for always being there for me when I need them. Thank you for coming to all my games and always cheering me on. Thank you both so so much for being my parents.
I would also like to thank some of my high school coaches, Coach Bullard and Coach DeSalvo. Thank you, Coach Bullard, for challenging me whether it’s in the weight room or on the field. You always challenge me to try new things, especially in the weight room where you’re always pushing me to do one more rep or to add more weight. You hold me accountable for my actions and I can’t thank you enough for that. Thank you, Coach DeSalvo, for teaching so much, especially about the outfield. When I started playing outfield my freshman year I never knew there was so much to learn about the position and I’m still learning. You have so much knowledge about the game and it still amazes me. Thank you again, Coach Desalvo for teaching me about the game I love.
I would also like to thank Coach Crask for being the amazing coach he is. Thank you for being the person you are, it means so much to me that you keep in contact with your former players. Thank you for always reminding us that it is just a game and to always have fun no matter what’s going on. Thank you for always being there for me and rooting for me every step of the way.
I also want to thank any other coach that had an impact on me from the 8U Flames days to the 18U Shockwaves, thank you all so much for helping me get to the place I am today.

MADDIE HINE, WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL
  • Signed with The University of Iowa (NCAA Division I)
  • Position: Defensive Specialist/Libero
  • Intended Major: Business Management/Entrepreneurship
  • Academic Achievements:
    • Wendy’s High School Heisman Winner for NHS
    • Academic All-State Volleyball
  • Non-Athletic Involvement:
    • National Honor Society
    • DECA

Why I Chose My School: I chose Iowa because I fell in love with the beautiful campus, the team and coaches, and I love that it is a Big Ten school which gives me an opportunity to play in a competitive and high-level culture. I earned a direct admittance into Tippie College of Business, which will allow me to further my education in the field I aspire to study after all the whole idea is to go there for an education and not just volleyball. I am excited to call myself a Hawkeye.

My Biggest Inspiration: My biggest inspiration would have to be my sisters. Living in Noblesville their entire lives and both playing volleyball, Morgan and Marissa managed to create a name for themselves that people remembered. As I grew up, I was always known as their little sister but I wanted to be my own person. I knew that if I could play up to their level, then I would succeed and create more opportunities for myself in the sport I love and be distinguished from my sisters.

I Would Like to Thank: I would like to thank both of my parents for supporting me and providing me with the opportunity to do what I love. They have pushed me harder than any coach I’ve ever had, yet they are always there to be my biggest fans. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you, Mom and Dad, and I love you both.
