GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com)
– Green Bay volleyball has announced the addition of three new players to her 2014 roster, as Wisconsin high school standouts Abby Jeffcoat (Racine, Wis./St. Catherine’s HS), Beth Kuske (Germantown, Wis./Germantown HS) and Taylor Totka (Racine, Wis./Horlick HS) have signed National Letters of Intent (NLI) to join the Phoenix next fall.

A 5-foot-11 outside hitter, Jeffcoat is St. Catherine’s High School’s career leader in kills with 1,699. She led the Metro Classic Conference with 712 kills as a senior in 2013, helping the Lady Angels to their fourth-straight undefeated conference season (12-0) and a WIAA Division 3 state semifinals appearance. All told, Jeffcoat’s teams were a combined 46-0 in conference play from 2010-13.

As a freshman in 2010, Jeffcoat helped St. Catherine’s to a perfect 43-0 record and a Division 3 state title. She set the state tournament’s record for hitting percentage (.400) that season, and was recognized as one of PrepVolleyball.com’s Top-25 finalists for national freshman of the year. She is a four-time all-conference honoree, two-time second-team all-state selection, two-time conference player of the year, two-time team MVP and the 2013 Racine Journal Times Player of the Year.

A versatile 6-foot-2 middle, Kuske led Germantown High School to a 33-15 record in 2013. She earned third-team all-state and second-team all-North Shore Conference honors as a senior, and was an all-conference honorable mention selection as a junior in 2012. Kuske finished third in the conference in hitting percentage (.393) and fourth in kills (2.6 per set) in 2013. As a junior, she accumulated 283 total blocks, averaging an impressive 2.4 per set.

A 6-foot-1 middle blocker, Totka helped Horlick High School to a Southeast Conference title in 2013. She was recognized as her team’s MVP and defensive player of the year, and was nominee for all-county player of the year. She led her team in blocks four straight years and was a two-time all-conference honorable mention selection.
