A right-side hitter, Diedrich comes to USC Aiken out of Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Fla.
“We are happy to sign another great athlete with a cannon of an arm swing,” mused Cox. “She comes from a high quality club program in Top Select and an athletic family. I expect her to compete immediately.”
Diedrich was named All-Metro and All-State in volleyball as a senior. She produced 428 kills as a senior. She had 42 blocks.
She was also chosen Player of the Week during her senior season by the Orlando Sentinel.
A two-sport star in high school, Diedrich was also an All-State Flag Football player. Flag Football is a sanctioned Florida High School Athletic Association sport.
In her three years as a member of Dr. Phillips’ Flag Football team, Diedrich obtained 32 interceptions as a safety.
Diedrich joins Alyssa Johnson as Pacer signings for the 2012 volleyball season. Johnson inked with the Pacers during the early signing period in November of 2011.
The duo joins a USC Aiken volleyball team that concluded the regular season ranked 10th in the final NCAA Division II Southeast Region Poll.
The Pacers finished the 2011 season with a 15-16 record. USC Aiken closed its year tied for third in the Peach Belt Conference with a record of 7-7.
