Caroline Crawford spent most of her formative years in Liberty, Missouri, but recently moved just across the border to Lansing, Kansas, which means her family will have an even easier time coming to watch her play at the University of Kansas next fall.

Position: Middle Blocker

Height: 6-2

Hometown: Lansing, Kansas

High School: Lansing High School

Club: KC Mavs

College Commitment: Kansas


“I grew up in a family that loves the University of Kansas,” Crawford said. “Being able to become a Jayhawk myself is a dream.”

Crawford, a First Team Under Armour High School All-American, credits her parents, both Division I college athletes, for her competitiveness. Mom played basketball at University of the Pacific, while her dad ran track at Kansas. 

Watch Caroline Crawford in action at the 2019 Under Armour High School All-America Match, streaming live right here on FloVolleyball, Dec. 31 at 7 PM ET.

“Caroline is a middle blocker who has extensive club, high school, and USA volleyball experience, having success at all those levels,” Kansas head coach Ray Bechard said. “Caroline is equipped to compete at a high level right away. She will be a physical blocker and can be a terminal attacker both in front of and behind the setter.”

Last summer, the 6-2 middle blocker helped Team USA win a gold medal at the FIVB U18 World Championships in September, the first time the U.S. junior or youth national team has ever won gold at a world-level tournament.

Despite missing time with her high school squad to compete with the youth team, Crawford finished the 2019 season with 288 total kills, hitting at an impressive .469 clip and adding close to a block per set. 

The senior lead her team to a third-place finish in the Kansas 5A state championship, rebounding from an 0-2 loss to Aquinas in the semis to win in straight sets over Goddard in the consolation match. In that third-place match, Crawford led with 12 kills on 13 attempts with just one error (yep, do the math, that’s a .846 hitting percentage). She was subsequently named 5A Player of the Year.
