Junior Outside Hitter Lorrin Poulter has committed to the University of Denver! A three year starter on Eaglecrest High School Varsity Team, Lorrin leads the program in both kills (167) and aces (58). As a sophomore, she received First Team All Centennial League honors.
Lorrin was a member of last year's 17 Black team that triple qualified for the GJNC. She will continue under Jim Stone's leadership on the 18 Black team this season. Congratulations Lorrin!
Julie Ward, Norco 18-Blue player and Berthoud High 4-year varsity starter, has committed to play DII volleyball at King University in Bristol, TN.
Julie has played club volleyball since her 12's season and for NORCO since her 14's. Starting out as a setter during her 12's and 13's years, she converted to an outside hitter, due to the arm strength she gained from also playing/pitching in competitive softball, from age 7 to age 14, when volleyball became her sport of choice. Julie also plays solid defensively in the back row as a 6-rotation player.
She has played at the Colorado High School 4A State tournament every year of high school thus far and at the AAU or GJNC nationals tournament every year while at NORCO. Her accomplishments include: Golden High School Tournament MVP (2014), 4A Tri Valley All Conference (2015, 2016), Berthoud Surveyor Athlete of the Week (2016, 2017), Reporter Herald Athlete of the Week (2016), Reporter Herald All Area (2015, 2016), Reporter Herald All Area Player of the Year (2016), Coloradoan All Area (2015, 2016) and CHSAA 4A All State Honorable Mention (2016). She plans to major in either Exercise Science/Kinesiology or Criminal Justice/Criminology (Forensic Science).
"I would like to thank my parents and family for all their support, my current and former teammates and all my coaches throughout the years for giving me the training and opportunities and pushing me for continuous improvement". Her favorite quote and words to live by: "Always stay humble and kind."
Annika Larson, a Junior at Rocky Mountain High School and 2017-2018 member of NORCO’s 18 Black team has verbally committed to play D1 volleyball for the Arizona State University, Sun Devils in 2019! She will be playing against her current club teammates Anna Dodson (UCLA) and MacKenzie Fidelak (Stanford) in the PAC 12.
Annika has played Libero/DS at Norco for 4 years. Each year her team has earned bids to the USAV Junior Nationals. Most recently, her 17 Black team secured three Open bids to Nationals including an outright win at Spokane's Northwest Qualifier.
Annika is a two year track and volleyball letter winner and was named 2016 Rocky Mountain High School Player of the Year amassing 591 digs in 82 sets which was the top digs/set (7.2) in Colorado 5A. She is a two-time Cherry Creek All-tournament team award winner, 2016 Denver Post 5A All State team member, 2016 Coloradoan All-Area Volleyball Team member, named to the CHSAA 5A All State Honorable Mention team in volleyball and was named to national Prep Volleyball’s Sophomore 79 Highest Honorable Mention List and Defensive Dandies 7th team. In 2017 she qualified for State in the 300 hurdles and was a DECA Business State finalist. She holds a 3.96 GPA.
“I am especially looking forward to club season this year and working hard to improve my game. Thank you to all my coaches and teachers for teaching me everything I know and for my teammates for always being there for me on the court. Most importantly thank you to God and my family who have shown and taught me to have faith, to always work hard, and to be persistent. I am so excited to play for the Sun Devils and have the opportunity to further my education!”

Our focus is more than volleyball and our qualified coaches strive to teach young men and women how to be successful. Every year, we hope to instill lasting impressions on these players that they will carry with them for a lifetime. Club Volleyball is a tool that teaches young men and women how to face difficult circumstances where they are forced to be uncomfortable and pushed to balance school, life, family, and volleyball. This is a challenge for every young adult and a necessary part of preparing for the next stages in life.
