“I think my determination and drive will help me to excel at the next level. I will also set goals for myself and work toward them daily,” Stoll said.

Those goals include making it to the Big Ten and NCAA championships and earning a bachelor’s degree. Stoll is undecided on his major at this time.

“My expectations are to work hard and enjoy being a part of an amazing school and team,” he said.

Stoll is the son of Gary and Dawn Stoll.

Olivia Crabtree signed to play volleyball at Malone University in Canton, Ohio. Malone is a member of NCAA Div. II and competes in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference.

Crabtree said she chose Malone because it has a strong criminology and forensic science department. After school, she wants to work for the FBI as a crime scene investigator. She also has a great connection with the university’s volleyball coach who she said is welcoming and personable.

About playing at the college level, Crabtree said, “From the moment I started playing volleyball with the PCABA, to junior high, playing club at a national level and then in high school, I always pushed myself to be the best I could be. I knew I didn’t want volleyball to end after high school.”

Crabtree is the daughter of Mindy and John Crabtree.

Olivia Ishmael (front, center), a senior at Jonathan Alder High School, signs a letter of commitment to play volleyball at Clarion University. With her are: (front row) her parents, Mark and Sondra Ishmael; (back) Jonathan Alder volleyball coach Allison Reule.

“Watching these girls as many times as I have, it never fails to amaze me how impressive they are,” she said. “The team has such high-level and competitive players. I can’t wait to join this amazing team and join in their success and growth the next couple of years.”

Ishmael plans to major in nutrition and fitness/pre-athletic training with the goal of becoming an athletic trainer for a professional sports team.

She is the daughter of Mark and Sondra Ishmael.
