Lippincott Signs with Southern New Hampshire

Vincennes, IN – Vincennes University sophomore Baylee Lippincott signed this week to continue her academic and athletic career at NCAA Division-II Southern New Hampshire University.

Baylee was a 6-foot 3 middle blocker and opposite hitter for the Trailblazers volleyball team. Lippincott came to Vincennes by way of Desert Vista High School in Phoenix, AZ and Grand Canyon University. Baylee spent her first year as a college student at GCU but did not play volleyball. Baylee is the daughter of Joe and Pam Lippincott and will continue majoring in Law Enforcement.

In Lippincott’s one season with the VU volleyball team, she racked up 175 kills, 26 aces, 108 digs, and 77 blocks. Baylee also had a .250 hitting percentage with the Trailblazers. Last season VU had a 30 – 12 overall record, reaching #20 in the NJCAA D-I rankings. The Trailblazers were the “Showdown on the Wabash” Tournament Champions and reached the Semi-finals of the NJCAA District J playoff tournament.

“We are very excited for Baylee!” VU coach Gary Sien added. “We recruited her in 2016 but it did not work for her to attend at the time. We maintained contact and got her to come to the “U” this year so she’s come full circle. She had a very good year for us especially in the second-half of the season. Our middle attackers hit a combined hitting percentage of almost .290%, one of the best tandems in the Nation. Baylee can contribute not only in the middle but on the right side and in the back row. She will fill any number of needs for Southern New Hampshire.”

Southern New Hampshire coach Dega Da Gama had this to say about signing Lippincott, “We have been in contact with Baylee since the end of our last season. And since our first conversation on the phone, we knew she is a sweet and genuine person. She is mature and responsible. All these values are essential for our program. We set up a visit for her in the last week of February. She spent a day and a half with our players, attended a few classes, and did just one practice with us for one hour. At the practice, was the big surprise we had with her because she fit so smooth in our system with our players. It was awesome!! I am 100% sure she will help our program. As a volleyball player she brings versatility to our team because she can play in all three front row positions, and as back row, she has solid defensive skills. In my opinion, Baylee’s experience at Vincennes University was crucial to improve her game. We are super excited and happy to have Baylee at SNHU for the next two years.”
