MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College volleyball program and head coach Gretchen Krumdieck have announced the signing of Kayla Brockway (Saint Johns, Florida) and Ebony Powers (Jacksonville, Florida) for the 2015 season.
Brockway is a Providence High graduate, who comes to Georgia College from Jacksonville, Florida. During her high school career the setter was a three-sport athlete in volleyball, basketball and tennis. Playing volleyball under head coach Jonathan Pennington at Providence, Brockway was awarded team MVP during her senior year and received the coach’s award during her junior season. Intending to major in athletic training she played club ball under coaches Adis Imamovic and C.J. Sherman with the Jacksonville Juniors 17N Team Rox.
“I am very excited about Kayla coming in,” said Krumdieck. “She brings a lot of intangibles to the court. She has a great ability to see both sides of the net and can run a very fast, effective offense.”
Powers is another Florida native, from Saint Johns and a graduate of Bartram Trail High, where she played under Rob Koehler. During her high school career, the utility also played on the Jacksonville Juniors 17N Team Rox alongside Brockway.
“Ebony will bring a new level of physicality to GC Volleyball,” revealed Krumdieck. “Her athleticism and power will only elevate our current team.” “She is also versatile and I cannot wait for her to be on our court.”
“Both have great chemistry coming in. Having played at the same club and on the same team will help with the transition to the college level. I, along with assistant coach Caroline Brown and the rest of the team are very excited to welcome Kayla and Ebony to the Bobcat Family.”
The GC Volleyball program will be approaching its third year of establishment, with last season posting a 7-20 record. The Bobcats were off to a hot start last season, winning four out of their first six contests.
The Bobcats will be led by rising senior Ella Anastasiades (Atlanta), who led the Georgia College defense at 4.8 digs per set. The GC Volleyball squad impressed in the classroom as well, posting a 3.413 GPA.
