On Wednesday night, the incomparable @CVBTransfers announced that Boston College middle tackle and opposite side forward Gabby McCaa will be coming to play for the Wisconsin Badgers next season. McCaa will potentially have two years of eligibility remaining.
Here are some quick facts about McCaa before diving into some stats:
Hometown: Minneapolis, Minnesota.
High school: St. Louis Park High School
The club team: Northern Lights, Burnsville, Minn.
Height: 6 feet 3 inches
Position: blocker/opposing midfielder
Now, before we continue, it’s important to note that Boston College isn’t exactly a volleyball powerhouse. They’ve had four winning seasons in their last 20 and one in their last 10. Last season, McCaa led the team in blocks and blocks per set at 117 and 0.98 and tied for second on the team with 26 service aces. She hit .256 with 87 kills, averaging 0.73 per set as well.
McCaa is the second transfer to join the Badgers this offseason, along with Caroline Crawford from Kansas. Wisconsin will look to defend their national title with a new roster as legends Dana Rettke, Sydney Hilley and Lauren Barnes have moved on.
