COLLEGE CONNECTIONS: Former Fairfield star digs college

GOSHEN — Senior libero Courtney Herschberger capped off her Taylor University volleyball career with NAIA Honorable Mention All-American honors.

The Fairfield High School graduate rewrote the libero records for Taylor this season as she set a new career high with 2,891 digs. This number is not only number one at Taylor, but ranks fourth all-time in NAIA history.

The exercise science major averaged 5.19 digs per game this year to lead the Crossroads League and rank 13th in the NAIA. She was selected as the Crossroads Libero of the Year and as a member of the First Team All-Crossroads League.

“I remember the day Courtney came to Taylor and started in our program as our libero,” said Trojan head coach Brittany Smith in an article on the school’s Web Site. “She had been an outside hitter, and I knew it would be a challenge for her to obtain an All-American honor in that spot. She would have to be one of the best of the best. And yet, four years later, she reached that goal. Not only did she lead our team and break several defensive records, but her numbers placed her as one of the top five libero’s in the country, an absolutely outstanding accomplishment. It was her hard work, discipline and complete trust in her team and coaches that allowed her to reach his milestone. I am incredibly proud of her, and know she won’t be easily replaced.”
