USI volleyball nets two signees
The University of Southern Indiana volleyball team announced that freshmen Cara Keever (Ft. Wayne, Indiana) and Stephanie Wilson (Terre Haute, Indiana) have signed national letters of intent for the 2004 season. They are the first two to sign with Head Coach Craig Bere’s Screaming Eagles this spring.
Wilson, a 5’10” setter from Terre Haute South High School, led her squad to back-to-back sectional championships, as well as the regional finals in 2002 and 2003. She led Terre Haute South in assists in three straight seasons and was selected All-County in 2001, 2002, and 2003.
A first-team Academic All-State selection, Wilson set school records for season and career assists. She was named to the Nike-Crossroads Classic All-Tournament team twice and was a four-time volleyball scholar athlete.
As a member of the Circle City Volleyball Club, Wilson helped lead her 15-club team to a USAV National Championship in 2001. She has been a member of three national championship qualifying teams throughout her club career.
Keever, a 5’9” setter from Bishop Luers High School, earned All-Summit Athletic Conference honors and was the Bishop Luers co-MVP as a senior in 2003. She helped Bishop Luers to sectional and regional championships in 2001 and 2002, as well as a second-place finish in the IHSAA State Tournament.
An honor roll student at Bishop Luers, Keever earned varsity letters in basketball, dance, and volleyball.
“Both Stephanie and Cara know how to win and will work hard to assist us in achieving the goals set for our team,” Bere said. “They both will provide a great deal of volleyball knowledge and athleticism to our program as they compete for the starting role. I am ecstatic to have these fine young ladies joining our family here at USI.”
