Decious To Join Defender Volleyball

(Monday, May 11; Sioux Center, Iowa) Hannah Decious, a senior at Mountain View High School (Arizona), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender volleyball program.

“Hannah is a good 6 rotation player and will provide us wonderful depth at the outside hitter position.  Her club and high school experiences have allowed her to compete at high levels and see many different styles of attacks and serves.  We are grateful for coaches Anthony Millanes and Clark Fleming for investing into Hannah’s development.  We look forward to having her join us this fall as she seeks to grow in all areas of her life and live out the Defender Way," said Dordt volleyball coach Chad Hanson.

Decious had 230 total kills during her senior season with 213 digs and a .210 kill efficiency and she had 59 ace serves.  She's played outside hitter, opposite hitter, defensive specialist and setter during her career.  She was a second-team all-region pick in 2017 and 2018 and was a first-team all-region selection in 2019. Decious is listed 5-8 and also played for the East Valley Juniors Volleyball Club.

"I really liked the community at Dordt and all the opportunities I would have. In the end I could picture Dordt as my home for the next four years," said Decious.

Hannah is the daughter of Michael and Catherine Decious of Mesa, Arizona. She plans to study Engineering at Dordt.

Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa, is a comprehensive Christian university rooted in the Reformed tradition. The Defender athletic program is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC).
