Steggall Signs


Morgan Moomey, Co-Editor-in-Chief

On November 16, senior Avah Steggall signed her letter of intent to play volleyball at North Platte Community College (NPCC). Steggall plans to pursue her degree in education while also being a collegiate athlete.

Steggall had some tremendous stats during her senior volleyball season at Alliance High School. According to, Steggall had “22 kills during her senior season. Steggall led her team with 44 serving aces and was third on her team for total blocks with 43. She also led her team in assists, 423, and assists per set, 4.8.” Not only did she have tremendous stats, but she also broke the school record for the number of ace serves in a match with eight. The previous number for this record was seven and was held by Jordan Hooper and Kennedy Cyza. 

In an interview with Steggall, she stated that she “decided to play sports in college because of [her] love of the game and the opportunities and lessons that come with planning college sports.” NPCC is a part of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). Out of the NJCAA schools, NPCC is in Division II region nine. 

Throughout her high school career, Steggall played a variety of positions. “I have changed positions many times. In my freshmen and sophomore year I was a middle blocker, but my junior year I was changed to a right-side hitter. [During] my senior year, the team was in need of a setter, so I was put in the position and was recruited to be a right-side hitter/setter.” Along with playing a new position her senior year that she will continue to play in college, Steggall is also nervous about the difference between high school and college-level sports. “I am very nervous to play in college because college sports and high school sports are very different, [with college sports being] more serious. I am most nervous about playing with girls that I have never played with. Building that connection will be difficult because I have played with all of the same girls since the 6th grade.” Even with the nerves, Steggall is beyond excited for the next chapter in her volleyball career. She stated, “I am most excited to continue playing the game that I love and I am very excited that I have gotten this opportunity to play at the next level.” 

The SPUD would like to wish Steggall the best of luck on her future volleyball and academic endeavors at NCPP!
