Volleyball Inks Madeleine Doud to National Letter of Intent

CORPUS CHRISTI – The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi volleyball team has signed Madeleine Doud (Alameda, Calif./Saint Joseph Notre Dame HS) to a National Letter of Intent, Head Coach Tony Graystone announced today.

"Madeleine is a great late pick up for us and a player who should contribute right away," Graystone said. "She's a rare middle blocker because she can score points with her offense, blocking and serve, but her block is definitely a true strength and she will help us improve immediately. Maddy's going to be a great Islander, and we can't wait to get started with her."

Doud, a 6-foot-1 middle blocker from Alameda, Calif. was a four-year letterwinner at Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School under Head Coach Eddie Chen, and led the Pilots to a 32-10 record her senior year. She registered 209 kills and 111 blocks, while serving up 23 aces, to earn second team all-league and the Coach's MVP award during her final season.

Doud will join Kristyn Nicholson (Lewisville, Texas/Lewisville HS) and Brittany Gilpin (Houston, Texas/Westside HS) as part of the 2014 signing class.

Reason for signing with Texas A&M - Corpus Christi: "Beautiful campus, great coaching staff and players, along with the major I would like to pursue."
