Sydney Nolan '22 has verbally committed to play volleyball in college. A verbal commitment happens when a college-bound student-athlete verbally agrees to play sports for a college before he or she signs or is eligible to sign a National Letter of Intent. The commitment is not binding on the student-athlete or the school and can be made at any time.
Sydney will play at Winthrop University (NCAA Division I), under the direction of coach Chuck Rey. Sydney is a three-year varsity player at The Academy of the Holy Cross and has played club volleyball for six years. Sydney's club team has qualified for the USA Volleyball National Championships for five consecutive years and the team is currently ranked 5th in the nation.
Sydney says that she is blessed and excited to play Division I volleyball and continue her academic career at Winthrop University. “I thank God, my family, friends, teammates, and coaches who have helped me get to where I am. I also thank The Academy of the Holy Cross for providing me with a great educational and spiritual foundation, and a great volleyball experience."
