DURHAM, N.H. – Head coach Jill Hirschinger of the University of New Hampshire volleyball team is pleased to announce the addition of transfer student Kym Gordon (Canandaigua, N.Y.). Gordon comes from Mississippi State after transferring from the University of Akron during the 2011 season.
"We are thrilled to add Gordon to our Wildcat family," Hirschinger stated. "We recruited Kym heavily out of high school and we're very excited she has decided to make Wildcat Country her home! Kym brings size and power in the middle and will immediately help our program."
The 6-foot-2 middle hitter will transfer to UNH with two years of eligibility remaining as a red shirt sophomore. At Akron, Gordon appeared in 23 matches while averaging 2.01 kills per set, ranking third on the Zips in 2011. Additionally, her 48 blocks placed her second on the squad in her freshman year.
At Canandaigua Academy, Gordon was a three-sport athlete, playing volleyball, basketball and track & field. In 2009, Gordon aided the volleyball team to a New York Class AA championship while being named Most Valuable Player in the tournament. In addition, she received high school All-America honorable mention that season. The following year, she was named Female Athlete of the Year at Canandaigua Academy. Gordon was named to the All-Greater Rochester First team all four years of high school as well as being named to the Daily Messenger All-League First team in 2008 and 2009.
