Bulldogs sign two for 2012-13 season

The Concordia University (Neb.) volleyball program signed two new additions for the 2012-13 season, adding Tiffany Patrick and Naomi Pfeil.  Patrick is a 5’8’’ setter from Sierra Lutheran High in Carson City, Nev.  While Pfeil is a 5’8’’ libero/outside hitter from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. 

Patrick was a four year letter winner in both volleyball and basketball. As a Falcon, she was named to the Northern Nevada 1A Second Team and team MVP as a freshman.  She was also named to the Northern Nevada 1A All Division First Team and team MVP in both her sophomore and junior seasons. As a senior, Patrick helped her team reach the state championships for the first time in school history.  She went on to earn the Northern Nevada 1A League MVP and Reno Gazette-Journal Northern Nevada 1A MVP.  In addition, Patrick served as the Falcons’ captain during each of her four years. Academically, Patrick was a 4.0 GPA honor roll student and has received recognition in multiple areas of study, receiving the Algebra Award (2009), the Computer Award (2010), and the Spanish Award (2011).  At Concordia, she looks to pursue a degree in chemistry.

"Tiffany attended our volleyball camps last summer, she was a great fit from the start! While on the court, Tiffany was continually looking to improve her game and I believe she'll continue to do that during her time at Concordia University, Nebraska,” said head coach Rachel Miller.  “It is our goal to bring in student-athletes like Tiffany who strive for excellence in all areas of their lives!"

A two year letter winner in both volleyball and track, Pfiel joins Concordia from Cedar Rapids Kennedy High.  As a Cougar, Pfiel received the Hustle Award as a freshman and received the same recognition along with team MVP in her sophomore season. As a senior, Pfeil was Honorable Mention All-Metro and All-Mississippi Valley Conference. She helped her team to a third place finish at state in three of her four years. Pfeil looks to pursue a degree in art while attending Concordia.

"Naomi is a great defensive player who works hard and goes after everything until the ball is down,” said Miller.  “That kind of mentality is difficult to teach. She's a great fit for our team and school, and I'm excited that Naomi has chosen to continue her career at Concordia University!"
