Class of 2020 recruit Maddie Lichty has committed to the Florida Gulf Coast Beach volleyball program for the 2021 season. Lichty, a sophomore in high school, is a native of Clemmons, North Carolina.
An attendee of West Forsyth High School, Lichty plays for the school’s indoor team as a 5’9″ outside hitter/right side/setter on a 15-2 (5-5 Conference) team. That versatility should bode well for the beach, as should her experience as she made varsity as a freshman in 2016.
On the club side of things, Lichty makes the switch to the sand as she plays with Beach South Volleyball. Highlights of some of her play from last year can be seen below via her YouTube channel:
The school she will be joining in a few years, Florida Gulf Coast, is coming off of a 15-9 season in 2017. Of their 12 man roster, four are freshman who would be set to be seniors come the 2021 season, but beyond that most of the roster is set to depart by the time Lichty arrives.
