[February 08, 2013]  DECATUR -- The Lincoln Christian University volleyball program has announced the signing of St. Teresa High School senior Amber Grubbs. Grubbs is the first recruit to sign with LCU in their 2013 recruiting class. She signed a letter of intent with LCU on Wednesday in front of friends, classmates and family at St. Teresa High School in Decatur.

The daughter of Stewart and Robin Grubbs, Amber benefits from a solid St. Teresa program, where she was the starting middle hitter. Her high school team went 32-7 overall, while making a run to the 2A supersectionals. St. Teresa lost to eventual 2A state champion Deer Creek-Mackinaw High School. As a senior, Grubbs put up some impressive numbers, recording 112 attack kills, 126 solo blocks, 142 total blocks and a hitting percentage of .229.

LCU head coach Dave Donnelly had this to say about the signing Wednesday: "I'm really excited that we were able to sign Amber today. With the seniors that we're losing from this year's team, Amber will be able to come in and have a chance at being a contributor from the get-go next season. She's a good front-row player and is an excellent communicator and teammate on the floor. I'm looking forward to working with her and having her be a part of our team for the next several years."
