Savanah Parra,
Assistant Volleyball Coach

Assistant Coach Savanah Parra enters her first season with the University of Southern Indiana volleyball program after a stellar career at the Ohio University. Parra assists Head Coach Leah Mercer in all aspects of the USI volleyball program.

Parra was a two-year starting setter at Ohio where she racked up more than 3,100 assists during her junior and senior seasons, including a school-record 1,704 assists as a junior in 2005.

During her four-year career at Ohio, the Bobcats were an astonishing 118-16 overall and 47-1 in Mid-American Conference play. Ohio also won four straight MAC regular-season and tournament titles while appearing in four NCAA Division I Tournaments including the 2005 Sweet 16.

The Bobcats were 61-8 overall and 32-0 in the MAC while Parra was Ohio's starting setter. She also averaged 14.10 assists per game and was twice named second-team All-MAC during her junior and senior year. She was the 2005 MAC Tournament Most Valuable Player and was an honorable mention selection on the AVCA All-Mideast Region team.

“Savanah comes from a highly successful Division I program and that experience will benefit our program,” Mercer said. “I feel fortunate to have someone with Savanah’s experience and background on my staff.”

A native of Temecula, California, Parra graduated from Ohio this past spring with a bachelor's degree in hearing, speech, and language sciences. She is pursuing her master's degree in social work from USI.
