Rock Creek’s Ligia Williams bumps the ball over the net during the Lions’ 3-0 sweep of Jennings County this past season. The 6-foot-3 rising senior committed to the University of Cincinnati last Friday.

Rock Creek rising senior Ligia Williams, one of the top volleyball players in the area, has made her college choice.

“I am so excited to finally announce that I will be continuing my athletic and academic career at The University of Cincinnati,” Williams wrote on social media this past Friday. “I am extremely grateful for everyone who has supported me throughout my journey. I would like to especially thank [my] family, friends, and coaches. Words cannot describe how excited I am!!! Go Bearcats.”

The 6-foot-3 middle blocker/outside hitter is coming off a standout season for the Lions, who went 25-8 and won their third straight sectional title. Williams topped the team in kills (422) and total blocks (92), while ranking second in service aces (54) and digs (246).

“Rock Creek could not be prouder of this young lady. She’s a pleasure to coach and a great teammate. So full of talent, keep enjoying life,” Lions coach Jennifer Brown wrote on the Rock Creek volleyball Twitter account.
