Under Armour All-American Profile: Anna DeBeer

In an interview with Catholic Sports Net earlier this year, Assumption High School outside hitter Anna DeBeer named Mikaela Foecke as her favorite player.

The Anna DeBeer File

Position: Outside Hitter

Height: 6-0

Hometown: Louisville, Kentucky

High School: Assumption

Club: KIVA

College Commitment: Louisville

Foecke, the two-time NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player and current national team outside hitter, seems as appropriate a role model as any for Louisville, Kentucky, native DeBeer, a rising talent in her own right.

As a junior, DeBeer played a major role in Assumption’s undefeated 43-0 season that culminated in a Kentucky state championship and many media outlets, including this one, naming the Raiders the No. 1 high school team in the country.

This year, DeBeer battled injuries throughout the season, but still managed to lead her team to a third consecutive state championship, be named Ms. Volleyball by the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association, and earn First Team Under Armour High School All-America honors. By the time the final point fell in the state championship match—a sweep of crosstown rival Mercy—DeBeer had collected 409 kills and 287 digs for her squad as a senior.

DeBeer and fellow first team UA All-American Rylee Rader have been teammates since third grade and will play one more season of club together this spring with KIVA, but the dynamic duo will go their separate ways next fall as DeBeer stays close to home to play for Dani Busboom Kelly at Louisville and Rader heads north to Ohio State.

“Anna is a hometown athlete that Card Nation will be proud of,” Busboom Kelly said of her incoming recruit. “You can't watch a match when Anna plays and not focus on her. 

“She controls the game is so many ways, from passing, defense, attacking, blocking, and serving. She truly is a five-tool player that can win matches in a number of ways. Coaches describe her as a player who is ‘always dialed in,’ whether it is a state championship match or a short practice.”
