AMES, Iowa – Iowa State volleyball head coach Christy Johnson-Lynch announced the addition of middle blocker Abby Greiman for the 2019 season on Thursday. The native of Perry comes to the Cyclones after a successful career in the middle for Dallas Center-Grimes.
“We are excited to add another Iowan to our roster,” Johnson-Lynch said. “Abby will be a wonderful addition both on and off the court. She has a lot of awesome characteristics and we cannot wait to add her to our program.”
Greiman helped lead the Fillies to back-to-back Little Hawkeye Conference titles and a trip to the 2018 Class 4A State Championships semifinals. A two-time All-Conference First Team honoree, Greiman ranked second on DCG with 155 kills on the season, while putting up 72 blocks on defense.
“She is a very good middle blocker,” Johnson-Lynch noted. “She is an experienced and smart player with a good volleyball IQ. I love her confidence and demeanor, she will be great to have in our program.”
As a junior for DCG, Greiman recorded 179 kills and a team-high 104 blocks on the season. She was one of just three players in Class 4A to record at least 100 total blocks during the 2017 season. Across her final two high school seasons, Greiman helped lead Dallas Center-Grimes to a combined 63-13 record.
Greiman has played her past two seasons of club volleyball at Iowa PowerPlex, helping her team qualify for Junior Nationals both seasons. She and her teammates will take part in the 2019 USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships this weekend in Dallas.
Off the court, Greiman comes from a family of Cyclones, with both her parents, Kurt and Tina Greiman, having both attended Iowa State and her sister Haley currently a student at ISU. She is a National Honors Society member and 2018 Academic All-State honoree from the Iowa Girls’ Coaches Association.
