Congratulations to Momentum Alumni Katie Pyles! Katie was name to the 2016 Volleyball ALL-SSC Second Team!
Senior setter Pyles finished her final season as a Shark posting big numbers. After tallying a total of 1,108 assists in 2016, she put her career total at 3,740 assists, good enough for second-best in program history. Her seven career triple-doubles are the most in the program’s NCAA history, three of them coming from this season, which ranked her eighth in the country. Pyles, hailing from Highlands, Colo., also ranks in the top ten all-time in career services aces (116) and digs (970), as well as two of the top ten single-season assists totals, just the second player to record 1,000 twice in a career.
“Katie has been the heartbeat of this team for years, and I am so glad to see her receive this recognition for a second season,” confessed head coach Jennifer King. “Her play improved each year, and her performance in her senior campaign was her best yet. She has the intangibles all coaches seek in their players, and her love of the game was apparent to everyone we competed against. She has created a great legacy at NSU and I could not be prouder.”
