Kate Volk named 2020 Dick Dhabalt Athlete of the Year

Kate VolkKate Volk has been named the 2020 recipient of the Dick Dhabalt Athlete of the Year Award at LLCC.

During the 2019 volleyball season, Volk helped lead the Loggers to 32 wins. Her season assist total is second in LLCC history along with 50 more assist matches than any other setter in school history. Her assist total led all of NJCAA volleyball in 2019.

Volk finished third on the team in digs and fourth in blocks. For her success on the court, Volk was named NJCAA 1st team All-American, MWAC Player of the Year and 1st team All-Region 24. In the classroom, Volk completed the year with a 4.0 GPA and was named to the NJCAA Academic All-American squad.

“Kate had a great season for us, but what I appreciate beyond the skills are her intangibles such as work ethic and integrity,” said Jim Dietz, LLCC head volleyball coach. “When you have an award like this, you want to make sure the winner upholds the standards Mr. Dhabalt set in his service to LLCC, and I think Kate is a perfect example of those values. Better still, regardless of this award, Kate will not stop putting the work in to get better. As a coach, you always love players like her.”

The LLCC Dick Dhabalt Athlete of the Year Award was established in February 2015 in honor of Mr. Dhabalt, former athletic director, head men’s basketball coach and faculty member, and acknowledges his dedication to education, athletics and students at LLCC.
