PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College volleyball team added Hallie Zumack, a transfer student-athlete. Zumack will be a part of the Storm in the 2017 season.
Head Coach Kevin Foeman said, "We are beyond excited to be adding Hallie to our Lake Erie Volleyball program. I had the pleasure of recruiting her the past few years as she starred at Independence High School and national power CVC, and to be able to add her to our team now is crucial for the future of this program".
Zumack had a decorated high school career amassing over 2,000 assists while being named to the All-State, All-District and All-Conference teams, along with the league's Most Valuable Player, Cleveland Plain Dealer Player of the Year, and Offensive Player of the Year. She was also twice named to the Renee Roche Invitational All-Tournament team as well as the Independence High School All-Academic Award.
While at Tusculum during the Fall of 2016, Hallie amassed 627 assists and 243 digs while playing in 117 sets and being named to the All-Freshman Team.
Coach Foeman added "Hallie is a perfect fit for the program and direction we are taking at Lake Erie. She is a court general who brings a level of intensity and passion to the court that inspires others to elevate their game. She has great hands and the ability to run a fast tempo, well balanced offense, as well as the hustle and determination to be a great defensive player. She has an impressive background and has played for really great coaches at the high school and club level, as well as a full year setting at the collegiate level, which will allow her to adapt to our system and program. We fully expect her impact to be felt immediately".
Hallie plans to study Criminal Justice while at Lake Erie. She chose Lake Erie because it is "a good distance away from my house, I really wanted to be a part of the volleyball program, and it has what I want to study!"
