WILMINGTON, Del. – Niki Receveur, a standout high school volleyball player at both Brandywine and Concord High School, has committed to Goldey-Beacom College, it was announced today by head coach Rich Bowers.

“My projection for Niki is to move into the libero spot vacated by A.J. Hicks ('11) this past year and continue the tradition of excellent defensive play in this spot,” Bowers said. “Niki is an excellent passer and gives 100-percent effort at all times. Her presence in the defense will help Goldey fight for a spot in the conference playoffs.”
Receveur played at Brandywine for two years before transferring to Concord for her junior and senior years. In her illustrious high school playing career, she was a starting setter all four years, earned All-Conference honors three years and honorable mention once, named an All-Star her senior year, and earned a DIAA Academic Athletic Excellence Award for a 3.0 GPA or higher during volleyball season. She also amassed over 1000 assists and 720 digs.
While at Brandywine, Receveur was named the team's most valuable player as a sophomore, and she became a school record holder for service points (24) in a game and service aces in a career.
When she arrived at Concord, she helped the team win the Flight B Conference Championship as a junior in 2008-09 and earn a No. 4 state ranking. Her senior season, she led the team to its second straight DIAA State Tournament and a No. 6 ranking.
Receuver also played eight years of National Club volleyball, starting at the age of 10. She competed in the National Junior Olympics as a libero and defensive specialist and earned multiple gold, silver and bronze medals throughout her club career.
Having graduated Concord High with academic honors, Receuver plans on majoring in Business Administration and completing GBC's five-year master program. She is not set on a concentration yet, but is interested in accounting, finance and sports management and administration. She would someday like to coach volleyball at the NCAA level
