Katie Gorman, daughter of Jason and Krista Gorman of Fort Scott, committed to play volleyball and continue her education at Drury University. Gorman spent the last two seasons as a part of the Greyhound Volleyball program, playing an integral part in them achieving a 27-11 record in 2016 and 26-10 record in 2017. The Greyhounds were ranked as high as #8 in the country this past fall.
In each of her two seasons at FSCC, Gorman was named to the KJCCC All-Academic Team, NJCAA All-Academic Third Team and a member of Phi Theta Kappa. Katie was a two year captain for the Greyhounds. As a freshman, Katie earned KJCCC All-Conference and Second Team All-District Honors.
As a sophomore, Katie was named First Team All-Conference Libero, First Team All-District and was nominated for NJCAA All-American. She was named to the All-Tournament Team at the Fort Scott, Neosho and Coffeyville Tournaments this past season, as well as being named KJCCC Defensive Player of the Week 4 times. Katie led the nation in digs, with 997. Over her two year career at Fort Scott, Katie has tallied 1773 digs, making Katie #1 in FSCC Volleyball History in digs in a career and #1 in FSCC Volleyball History for digs in a season.
"I am extremely proud of Katie and everything she has been able to accomplish as a Greyhound. Katie was the poster child for what our program is about and represents. There is no doubt that she will be very successful at Drury. Drury has a great volleyball program and is a great academic school. I am honored to have coached Katie for two seasons and look forward to watching her many successes at Drury," stated Head Volleyball Coach Lindsay Hill.
Katie's plan while attending Drury University is to major in Biology and then attend Physical Therapy school.
