“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.

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.
