Caitlin Mullins recently became the newest signee with the St. Catharine College volleyball program, as announced by first-year coach Jason McDannold. And the defensive specialist from Western Hills High School (Frankfort) comes with glowing reviews from both McDannold and her high school coach Kristi Buffenmyer.

“Caitlin is most definitely a leader rather than a follower,” said Buffenmyer. “She has always displayed a high degree of ambition in anything she does. Caitlin is someone for all the younger girls to look up to both on and off the volleyball court. Her sportsmanship and competitive nature will be very missed here at Western Hills High School.”

McDannold added, “We are excited to add Caitlin to our family at St. Catharine. She has proven to be a leader during her high school career. She brings those leadership skills as well as knowledge of the game. I’m very happy she decided to become a Patriot.”

Mullins, who chose St. Catharine over Morehead State and Northern Kentucky University, played varsity volleyball for the Wolverines in all four years of high school. She received the Coach’s Award in 2010 and had the most digs in 2010. She was the team’s Most Valuable Player in 2011 and 2012 and also was the team captain in both of those years.

Mullins, who will major in Radiology, is eager to move into her collegiate career. “I am looking forward to participating at the collegiate level while pursuing academics in my fields of study,” she said.
