West Stokes senior Hannah Delcamp signed a letter of intent to play volleyball for Salem College alongside family, coaches, and administration on Monday afternoon.
“I’m excited to make it official. I really love the campus and the school,” she said.
Delcamp has been a setter for the Wildcats volleyball program the past four years and has also been part of Set Point Volleyball Club, Surry Storm, and Champion Volleyball Club.
“There’s always room for improvement so it’s given me more experience and helped me become a better player,” she said.
As club director at Champion Volleyball and South Stokes volleyball coach, Doug Balser said Delcamp is a smart player and will be a strong addition to Salem College.
“We’re really excited she’s going to be local because we like to get our former players involved in coaching. She’d be very good at it,” Balser said.
Delcamp’s parents, David and Kelley believe their daughter’s college choice is a good match.
This past season, they were able to watch both their girls play on the varsity team at West, which they’ll miss next year.
“We enjoyed seeing them together. We’ve spent a lot of family time watching them involved in sports so it was special,” Delcamp’s mother said.
With a 4.3 grade point average, the student athlete has set the bar high on and off the court.
Her Wildcats coach, Jordan Stevens said she leads the team in everything she does.
“She’s very committed to the program and she wants to do things the right way. It’s never just about her, she wants to see her teammates succeed. She’s one of those types of athletes that works to keep getting better.”
For that reason, Delcamp was honored with the 2015-16 Wildcats Award at the end of the season.
Stevens said, “She’s an all-around great player. It’s her work ethic, dedication, discipline that makes her stand out. I believe she’s going to go to Salem and make an immediate impact.”
