ROXBURY, NJ - Roxbury High School senior Lauren Kornmann, praised by her coach for elevating the school's volleyball team, signed a commitment Friday to attend the State University of New York at Binghamton.

“The recent Morris County Volleyball Tournament champion helped take an average team hovering above .500 to make history by winning the Conference in 2014, the Morris County Championship in 2015 and advancing to the state Sectional Finals in 2015,” said a statement announcing the senior’s decision written by Roxbury Volleyball Coach Beth Grasso.

In the statement, Grasso praised Kornmann, calling her an “exceptional” student-athlete. “I have had the great honor  and  privilege  of  coaching  her  on  the  varsity squad  for  the  past  four  years  and  I  have  witnessed her transform herself and our volleyball program into a Top 20 team in the state,” wrote the coach.

Kornmann helped lead the Gaels to a record of 46 wins and 9 losses in two years. “She exemplifies the values of  hard  work,  character  and  a  commitment  to  excellence,  and  is  one  of  the  most  humble  and  unselfish individuals I have ever met,” stated Grasso. “When meeting her you would have no idea that she is one of the top volleyball players in the state of New Jersey. Lauren continuously brings out the best in others and takes no credit for doing so.”

Korrnmann, in the statement, said she looks forward to attending the university which she described as being a “perfect fit” in terms of location and size, “with a beautiful campus, outstanding academics and exceptional volleyball program.”

Grasso said Kornmann should fit right in at Binghamton. “I am extremely confident that, just as she has for our program, Lauren will make a huge contribution to the team and school community” at SUNY Binghamton, said Grasso. She said that, while she will miss Kornmann, she is “excited to see her inspire others to achieve greatness the way she has done at Roxbury High School.”

Kornmann expressed thanks to all at Roxbury High School who helped her over the years. “Roxbury High School is where I’ve spent the best four years of my life,” she said. “I’ve excelled not only academically, but athletically as well. I have been a part of the Roxbury Girls Varsity Volleyball Team ever since I walked through the doors of the high school as a freshman. I’m now a senior, and have made huge strides throughout my career.”

During her time at Roxbury, Kornmann was  awarded  Honorable  Mention,  First  Team  All­Conference,  First  Team  All­County and Third Team All­State. “Playing here and especially studying here has shaped me into the person I am proud to be today,” she said. “I will forever be grateful for what Roxbury has provided me with during this time of my life.”
