Kayla Ostrom, a 2013 Harrison graduate is running the volleyball court at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.
As a freshman Ostrom trained behind senior setter Caitlin Dotson, but earned immediate court time as a defensive specialist.
Ostrom recorded 98 assists, 158 digs, and 19 service aces her freshman year at Lipscomb University.
Now, as a sophomore, Ostrom has taken over Dotson’s setting position, and is performing at her best almost every game.
During the Northern Kentucky match, Ostrom recorded her career high, 59 assists.
Ostrom is second in assists in the Atlantic Sun Conference with 863, and 31st in NCAA division I with 10.92 assisters per set.
The Lady Bison are 14-7 overall and 7-1 in conference.
Recently, Ostrom was diagnosed with mono.
She hopes to return healthy before tournament play begins.
Ostrom has enjoyed every moment at Lipscomb.
“My experience so far has been amazing. My teammates are more like sisters to me. I’ve learned a lot more about the game and what I want to do later in life. I feel myself growing more into the person I know I am designed to be.”
Ostrom is excelling on the court and in the classroom.
She plans to major in chemistry and minor in business.
“I have no doubt that this where I am supposed to be,” said Ostrom.
