Coyotes Add Teammates

Coyotes Add Teammates

Former Sioux City Bishop Heelan teammates Katelynn Poss and Megan McCarthy will be teammates again at USD. Both have joined the South Dakota volleyball team according to head coach Matt Houk. Both will start play in the fall as freshmen.

Poss and McCarthy helped the Crusaders to state finals appearances at the Iowa State Tournament in 2010 and 2011, and a semifinal appearance in 2012.  The duo also helped extend Bishop Heelan’s consecutive state tournament appearance streak to 15 and consecutive seasons of reaching the state semifinals to 10.

Poss, a defensive specialist, was a first-team all-state selection last year and was named to the 2012 Iowa All-Stars Team.  She recorded 526 digs last season to rank 10th in Iowa for all classes.  She also competed on Heelan’s soccer and track teams.

“Katelynn is a quick and agile defender who has the ability to make the other players on the court better,” Houk said.  “Her potential hasn’t come close to being tapped into yet, so I am excited to start working with her.”

McCarthy, an outside hitter, was a second-team all-state selection while totaling 388 digs, 284 kills and 79 aces last year.  She also played basketball and golf in her prep career, and was a first-team all-state basketball honoree.

“I believe Megan has the ability to score points at a high level,” Houk said.  “I love her winner’s mentality.  She knows how to compete and will let nothing stand in her way to success.”
