Indiana Volleyball Signs Leish For 2014
Nov. 13, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Head volleyball coach Sherry Dunbar has announced that Jessica Leish, an outside hitter from from Wyoming, Ohio, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play volleyball at Indiana in 2014.
Leish, a product of Wyoming High School, will be a nice fit for the Hoosiers' squad next fall which will lose two outside hitters to graduation at the conclusion of this season. According to Dunbar, Leish's size and athleticism will be much welcomed to the 2014 lineup, "Jess is a good fit for Indiana," said Dunbar. "Not only because of her athletic ability, but her mentality as well. She is a long 6'-2" outside hitter that can play six rotations and will fill a void we have with losing seniors Jordan Haverly and Jade Henderson."
That work ethic and athletic ability has been apparent throughout her decorated high school career. Under head coach Julie Plitt, Leish was a two-time first team All-State selection and earned first team All-CHL and All-City accolades during her sophomore and junior campaigns while helping Wyoming to League and District Championships for four consecutive seasons. Leish also saw success with her club team, the Cincy Aces, where she helped them to a third place finish at nationals and earned All-American honors at that tournament.
Her list of accolades is not limited to the court. Leish is a member of the National Honor Society and French Honor Society. She is also a direct admit into the prestigious Kelly School of Business where she intends to major in finance.
Another positive element that Leish brings to the table is her personality. "She is a great teammate and a quality person," Dunbar adds. "She will do the extra work, and in the Big Ten Conference, that is what is needed."
