Jacqui Mostrom, a 5-foot-3, defensive specialist from Springfield (Mo.) Glendale High, has joined Kansas University’s volleyball team, KU coach Ray Bechard announced Thursday.
Mostrom graduated from Glendale High a semester early to attend Wichita State and train with the WSU volleyball team — which includes sisters Danielle and Gabi — in the spring. But she changed her mind for reasons academic and athletic.
Mostrom attended Parkview High for her first two years of high school, earning first-team all-league honors, before transferring to Glendale, which she led to the 2015 Ozark Conference title as a senior.
“Although it’s late in the process for adding someone to our team, Jacqui comes in as very skilled and prepared to succeed at this level,” Bechard said. “Having had a ton of high-level club experience, she could push for playing time early.”
