Former Minnesota middle blocker Molly Lohman is transferring to the TCU beach volleyball program for her final season of collegiate eligibility. A recent graduate from the University of Minnesota, Lohman will be immediately eligible for the 2019 beach season.
A native of Mankato, Minnesota, Lohman came to Minnesota in 2014 and played in 51 sets as a true freshman. Her opportunities skyrocketed as a sophomore in 2015 and carried on her final three seasons as she appeared in a pair of Final Fours in her middle two years.
Individually, Lohman earned AVCA All-America Honorable Mention (2016), All-Big Ten Honorable Mention (2016) and North Region Honorable Mention (2017) in her time. She finished her career with 536 blocks, good for fifth all-time at Minnesota. She also recorded 658 kills (1.59 per set) on a .356 hitting percentage, 150 digs and 55 aces. In her final season she notched per set numbers of 1.95 kills (.386), 1.35 blocks, 0.59 digs and 0.30 aces.
A 6’3″ middle blocker indoors, Lohman is likely to play the attacker role as a hitter/blocker for her pair.
TCU beach finished the 2018 spring season at 10-22 overall with four seniors on the roster.
