Southwood senior Drew Rhamy has chosen to continue her volleyball career at Division II Regis University in Denver Colorado next year. Rhamy signed her national letter of intent Tuesday at Southwood.
When asked about the move out of state Rhamy said, ”The coach made me feel welcome and was really interested in me. I wanted to take the opportunity while presented.”
While at Southwood, Rhamy was a three-time varsity award winner in volleyball. During her career, Rhamy was seventh all time in career service attempts with 1184, sixth in service points (675), good serves (1073), fifth in attack attempts (2126), kills (719), defensive digs (796), 3rd in aces (173) and first in passing percentage at 90.2 percent.
Rhamy was part of four TRC championships, four sectional championships, four regional championships and three final fours. Southwood was 20-1 in the TRC with Rhamy playing.
Individually, Rhamy was second team TRC and All County in 2011, first team TRC and TRC All Academic in 2012, first team TRC, Honorable Mention All Academic TRC and a member of the 1A/2A North All Star team in 2013.
Rhamy added “I’m going in as a defensive specialist with two girls in front of me. Hopefully with hard work. I will earn some playing time as a freshman.”
Rhamy will study either Sports Management or Sports Administration while at Regis.
