The anchor of Riverhead’s defense the past three seasons, Joscelin Morrow will continue her volleyball career starting next fall at Georgia Southern University, a Division I school. 

Morrow, a three-year varsity starter for the Blue Waves, was the defensive specialist who played libero. A versatile player who could contribute in all facets of the game, Morrow helped lead the Blue Waves into the playoffs as a junior in a season where she recorded 443 digs.

“In addition to her skills as a player, her excitement and enthusiasm makes her very entertaining to watch,” said Riverhead coach Amy Greene. “I have never coached anybody who has had as much passion as I have for the sport. I will definitely miss her. Losing her is going to create a huge hole next year, but we wish her the best in college.”

Morrow set the school record for digs in a match with 41 and finished her career with 933. She also tallied 73 aces and 98 kills.

Morrow has been playing on travel volleyball team since eighth grade.

Morrow is following the footsteps of her older sister Julia, who plays Division II softball at the University of Tampa, where she’s currently a senior.

As a sophomore, Morrow was the league Rookie of the Year. As a junior she was the Defensive Player of the Year and this past season was an academic all-county selection.

Off the court, she’s a member of the National Honor Society and is the vice president of the Foreign Language National Honor Society. She’s ranked 12th in her class.
