Cora Kellerman of Mount Vernon, Wash., and La Conner High School has signed an official letter of intent to attend Eastern Washington University and play for the volleyball squad, interim head coach Irene Matlock announced. The 6-0 middle blocker will arrive on the Eastern campus in 2008.
"She is a tremendous young athlete who can play any position on the floor," Matlock said. "She is a great student who I could see join this young group and fit in incredibly well. She has incredible flexibility and is a great athlete. She'll have a fun time here at Eastern."
Kellerman was a four-year varsity letterwinner who just nine days ago helped lead LCHS to its second successive 2B state title. She was also part of state runner-up teams her first two years at the school.
Her individual honors include being named all-state, all-area and all-league. Kellerman was named the Northwest League's Most Valuable Player this year. She also saw success in basketball as a three-year varsity starter and in track & field, qualifying for state meets in several events.
Academically, she carries a 4.00 grade point average and is planning to earn bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering.
Her father, Brian, played basketball at the University of Idaho, where he was named the MVP of the Big Sky Conference and helped lead the Vandals to a No. 6 ranking in the AP poll, as well as a berth in the 1982 NCAA Sweet 16.
