Neely to continue volleyball career at Peru State
North Platte Community College volleyball player Madison Neely has signed a letter of intent to play for Peru State College.
She is the second NPCC volleyball player to transfer to Peru State. Neely’s teammate, Allie Schneider, announced her intentions in April.
“I chose Peru because I knew I wasn’t ready to be done playing my favorite sport, and the [Peru] team was very welcoming when I visited,” Neely said. “They also have a pre-radiology program, which is the field I plan to pursue a career in. During my time here at North Platte, I have made many lifelong friendships and have had great opportunities academically and athletically. I have learned so much throughout my time here and am thankful for my coaches, teammates and the great instructors here in North Platte.”
The 5-foot, 9-inch middle blocker from Broken Bow ended the year second in the region in service aces per set with .38 and third in the region with blocks per set with an average of .7.
Altogether, Neely managed 124 kills, 47 service aces, 80 blocks and 105 digs for the Knights last season.
During her time at NPCC, Neely has helped her team win both the regional and district championships. She has also qualified for the Dean’s and President’s lists.
“I am excited for Madi and her decision to continue playing,” said NPCC head volleyball coach Alexa McCall. “Madi has been an integral player during her two years with us, having to step in as a freshman middle and adapt quickly. She is one of the hardest working and toughest players I have ever coached. I am also proud of Madi and the things she has contributed to our Knight family. She is a great representative of our program. We wish her the best of luck as she continues her academic and athletic career.”
