May 23, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - Kelly Kabbes, a 6-foot middle hitter from Cary, NC, has declared her intent to enroll at The George Washington University and play for the Colonials' volleyball program, GW head coach Jojit Coronel has announced. Kabbes joins three signees to complete the incoming class of four recruits for GW Volleyball.
Kabbes was named co-captain and MVP as a senior for the Cardinal Gibbons High School Crusaders under coach Jim Freeman. She is one of only two North Carolina players selected as honorable mention All-America by Studentsports.com. She was named 2002 Triangle Independent School Athletic Association (TISAC) Conference Player of the Year and had her #24 jersey retired at Cardinal Gibbons. Her 726 career kills ranks second on the school's all-time list and her 211 total blocks rank third. She recorded 403 career digs and hit .407 as a senior averaging 3.84 kills per game. She also pounded a school-record 30 kills in state tournament semifinal victory last year.
Kabbes led her team to a 26-6 record as a senior, 34-3 as a junior and 29-0 her sophomore season for a three-year combined record of 89-9 winning the NCISAA 3A state championship each year.
"Kelly brings much-added depth and competition," said Coronel. "I truly believe we are extremely fortunate to have such a good athletic player walk onto our team. She is going to become a huge contributor during her four years as a Colonial."
