Montreat College in the NAIA classification has landed a Division I women’s volleyball transfer in Katie Stanton from Gardner Webb. A sophomore for the upcoming season, Stanton will be immediately eligible for the fall of 2018.

“I chose Montreat because I really like Coach Kamer’s coaching style, the girls are great, and I love the atmosphere that Montreat has,” Stanton said in Montreat College’s story of the transfer. “It is a place where I can see myself not only growing as a person and becoming a productive person in society, but also growing in my faith as a Christian.”

A 6’0″ outside hitter, Stanton came to Gardner Webb out of Newnan, Georgia where she attended Northgate High School. At the school, she logged nearly 700 career kills on a .321 mark. She was also a part of the Tsunami Volleyball Club.

“Katie will be able to bring depth as a hitter for us at the pin. When she joined us for a visit she fit right with the girls,” Montreat College head coach Kristy Kamer said in the team’s release of the addition. “We can’t wait to watch her grow on and off the court not only in her faith, but in her ability to be a true servant leader.”

A member of the NAIA and Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC), Montreat College finished the 2017 season at 14-14 overall and 10-8 in league action. The Cavaliers had eight players who could fill the outside hitter role last year, but three graduated to open up some spots for Stanton.
