WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- Following in the footsteps of two of her older sisters, local product Allie Warren has decided to continue her volleyball career in the collegiate ranks as she recently signed a national letter of intent to attend Palm Beach Atlantic University and play for the Sailfish volleyball team.
Utilized as both an outside hitter and defensive specialist at Martin County High School in Stuart, Florida, Warren will look to get her volleyball career back on track after an injury forced her out of action for her senior season.
Health has been about the only thing to slow down Warren as she was named to the Florida All-State listing in 2006 as a junior while leading the treasure coast in kills (293), digs (365, school record), and aces (72).
While the injury may have cut her high school season short, Warren has been active in getting back into playing shape as she has most recently competed for the Palm Beach Juniors travel team.
Warren joins sisters Sarah Beth and Whitney making the choice of Palm Beach Atlantic. Whitney graduated in 2007 and Sarah Beth, a rising senior, played two years for the school before deciding to drop the sport. Both played for former PBA head volleyball coach and current athletic director Bob White.
An active member of recent trips internationally with Go All Sports Missions, the addition of Warren to the 2008 PBA squad is exactly the type of student-athlete new head coach Beth Avila and the Sailfish coaching staff is looking for as she also holds a commendable grade-point average as well as being a member of the MCHS National Honor Society.
Allie is the daughter of Frank and Laura Warren.
Warren joins a solid list of recently announced recruit signings by Beth Avila. Stay tuned to PBASAILFISH.com for future updates on all the signings for PBA volleyball.
