BOURBONNAIS, Ill. – The Olivet Nazarene University volleyball team is pleased to announce that Kelsey Geiman, a senior at St. Mary’s Catholic Central High School has signed a letter of intent to continue her education and playing career as a Tiger. Geiman will join the Tigers in the fall of 2014.
“I chose Olivet Nazarene University for many reasons,” said Geiman of her choice.
“I have attended a Catholic school and church all of my life. I am a Christian and I believe that God will continue to bless me through my years at ONU. I will deepen my faith through my religion classes and chapel.”
As a junior, Geiman helped lead St. Mary’s to the Michigan State Finals. She even set a Michigan volleyball championship record when she served 12 consecutive aces. She was named the team’s Most Improved Player and was the Monroe Evening News November “Athlete of theWeek”. When not competing for St. Mary’s, Geiman is a member of the Michigan Elite Down River Team.
When not competing on the court, Geiman finds success in 4-H, having received the Outstanding Lucky 4-H member – Focus Livestock Award nine times since 2005.
“I was very interested and impressed with Coach Williams’ volleyball program, which I am excited to be a part of,” Geiman continued. “I was pleased with the coaching, training and success. Another very important item is ONU’s education program. I want to be a teacher and I feel the curriculum will prepare me for my future as an elementary teacher.”
Geiman is the daughter of Larry and Patricia Geiman of Carleton, Mich. She has a brother, Ryan and a twin sister, Kate. While at Olivet she intends to major in elementary education.
