HILLIARD, OH - Ohio Christian University is happy to announce Lexi Jacobs as the latest addition to the Trailblazers volleyball program. Jacobs was a standout performer at Hilliard Bradley High School where she played under head coach RyAnne Ufferman. Jacobs was a three year starter at Hilliard Bradley where she played the position of outside hitter.
As a senior, Jacobs played a key role in the Hilliard Bradley volleyball team winning its second league title in three seasons and earning the program's highest postseason seed in 2013. The Jaguars finished 12-2 in the OCC-Cardinal Division to tie Westerville Central for the league championship ahead of third-place Dublin Scioto (11-3).
"It was the second OCC championship for Lexi and our senior class, who also won as sophomores," coach RyAnne Ufferman said. "Their leadership has been essential to our success." Hilliard Bradley ended up finishing up the regular season with an 18-4 overall record. Lexi enjoyed a strong senior year as she tallied 133 kills, 47 blocks and 66 digs. She also performed well as a server for the Jaguars as she was 95.9 percent on serving to go along with 29 aces.
Jacobs joins an up and coming OCU volleyball program that has been ranked in the NCCAA Top Ten each of the last two seasons. The Trailblazers reached the NCCAA National Tournament for the first time in 2012 after winning their first Mid-East Region Championship. With a strong core of returning players and some fresh new faces coming onto the scene, the Trailblazers hope to make another NCCAA National Tournament run this Fall.
