Caroline Curran Picks Ohio University For College Volleyball
North Allegheny senior libero Caroline Curran will continue her athletic and academic career at Division I Ohio University. Curran announced her verbal commitment via social media on Saturday.
A significant contributor to North Allegheny’s run of dominance in the PIAA since her freshman year, Curran had her best season thus far in 2021. Last fall, Curran led the Tigers with a team-high 412 digs and added 62 assists, third best on the squad in that category. Additionally, she kept opponents off-balance with her outstanding serves and totaled 16 aces on the campaign.
Curran took home plenty of postseason hardware, earning All-State honors from the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association. She was also named second-team All-WPIAL and first-team all-section from the Big 56 Conference. With the help of Curran, North Allegheny went 20-1 last year and won a fifth straight PIAA Class 4A championship and fourth WPIAL title in the last five seasons.
Caroline Curran will join her older sister, Madi, in playing NCAA Division I volleyball. Madi Curran will begin her junior season at Saint Francis University in the Northeast Conference this fall.
Caroline Curran and the North Allegheny Tigers will open the 2022 season at home against Freeport on Monday, August 29. The Tigers will vie for a sixth consecutive state championship.
