Congratulations to Sophie S. 22’ on her verbal commitment to play volleyball at the University of Illinois! A first-team ECL all-league selection for both the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 seasons for the Emerald City League, she is excited about the next chapter!
“Illinois was always my first choice and being able to play collegiate volleyball as well as compete in the most competitive conference in the country is insane, said Sophie, “The academics, sports, and culture Illinois has are unmatched.”
Sophie has played volleyball competitively for 7 years, both as a Blazer and at the club level with Washington Volleyball Academy. She was a captain of her 16 A team last year and is now playing for the 18 A team. We are so proud of Sophie and can’t wait to see what comes next!
