Multiple Teams · Alumni Spotlight: Kaitlyn Leary ’10

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Kaitlyn Leary teamed up with Madi Kingdon to reach the AVCA Sand Pairs Championships Final Four and earn AVCA Sand Volleyball All-America recognition. Leary played four years of indoor volleyball at Ohio State before graduating and transferring to the University of Arizona for a fifth season of eligibility in sand volleyball with the Wildcats.

Leary took advantage of an NCAA rule that grants a fifth year of athletic eligibility for student-athletes desiring to compete in a different sport. As a Wildcat, Leary posted an overall record of 27-6 which included a 24-3 mark when paired with her All-American partner Kingdon.

The Parma, Ohio, native left an impressive mark during her four years in Columbus. Leary remains splattered all over the OSU all-time record books, accumulating career statistics which rank among the best totals in school history.

Leary’s final campaign donning the Scarlet & Gray was her best. In 2013, she was awarded AVCA All-America Honorable Mention after pacing the entire Big Ten with 577 kills (4.85 per set) during the regular season.


Congratulations to Kaitlyn Leary ’10 on representing¬†Padua Franciscan High School and The Ohio State University with this tremendous honor at the University of Arizona.
