Mattoon High volleyball player Grace Earp signed her scholarship to Vincennes University today.
The Mattoon senior is the daughter of Dave and Becky Earp of Mattoon.
Earp signed at Mattoon High School with the Vincennes Trailblazers, who are coached by Gary Sien.
Said Coach Sien: “Grace possesses several skill sets we like to see in our athletes. Though she is coming to us primarily as a back row player, we love the fact that she can hit. We typically want our players to be capable of playing more than one position and Grace fits the bill. We expect her to be a leader as well. Our primary libero position is wide open next year as we graduate our starting libero. In my four seasons at the university, that position was one of the most consistent. Two out of four years, we had a player who was either number one or two in the nation and top 10 in the other years for total digs.”
