Degen hoping to get defensive at Milligan


Don't underestimate the power of passing and digging it's punching Christy Degen's ticket to college.

The Farragut High School senior All-state volleyball star will take her skills as a defensive specialist to Milligan College of Johnson City after signing with the NAIA school Wednesday, May 11, in the FHS Commons. "Athletically and playing-wise, she's one of the best passers I've ever had, and I don't see that being any different in college," FHS volleyball head coach David Moore said. "She's an outstanding passer. That's one of those unsung jobs in volleyball, you don't get a lot of credit. Really, it's the most important job 'cause if you can't pass, you can't play and generate any kind of offense.


"It's been a pleasure coaching her four years, she's a great kid."

Recruited specifically to be a defensive specialist at Milligan, said MC head coach Kim Hyatt, "She is very quick, very fast-paced. She has great passer form, and thats what our team really needed.

Degen, 18, said she chose Milligan because, "I love the coach and all the players, and I love the campus, too."
