A 6’1″ setter and right side hitter, Bigelow is off to a 14-4 start to her junior season at Kasson-Mantorville High School according to MaxPreps. On the club side she plays for the Rochester Youth Volleyball Association that funnels down to Southern Minnesota Volleyball, which has produced plenty of other collegiate athletes.
So far in 2017, North Dakota has one of the best records in the country as they have compiled 23 wins to just four losses. They are also 8-2 in the Big Sky as they are one of the top competitors in the conference for an automatic bid and an NCAA Tournament appearance.
This year’s roster for North Dakota consists of three setters and two right side hitters. Of the setters, one is a senior while the other two setters and two opposites are sophomores and freshmen. That means that two of the five will be seniors with one graduated by the time Bigelow is set to arrive.
