At age 6, Korie was learning the basics of the sport from her grandpa. From there she advanced to middle school and high school volleyball teams in Seguin, and even made time for off-season volleyball as a member of the Strikers Volleyball Club.
After moving to Karnes County, Korie competed on the Karnes City Badgers JV team her junior year and even got to play in a couple of varsity playoff games at the end of that season, which was the first season a Karnes City volleyball team won the bi-district championship game.
The next season, Korie really began to shine on the volleyball court earning 1st team All District and Academic All District honors.
For the second straight year, with Korie on the court, the Lady Badgers won the bi-district title.
Korie was interested in attending Coastal Bend College and while taking a tour of the campus, was asked to participate in a volleyball team try-out on Dec. 10.
The Coastal Bend coaches were impressed and asked her to come back for another round of tryouts.
All of this led to Coastal Bend College asking Korie to sign a letter of intent, commiting to play for the Coastal Bend team later this year.
Korie said she was very excited about getting the opportunity to play for Coastal Bend, and so she was eager to sign the letter which she did in a special ceremony at Karnes City High School last week.
