Dike-New Hartford high school volleyball standout Payton Petersen has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Louisville.
She made the announcement on Twitter.
Payton, a junior, has helped lead Dike-New Hartford to two consecutive Class 2A state championships. The Wolverines are currently top-ranked in 2A and are favorites to repeat their state championship.
Last year as a sophomore Petersen was named the Class 2A Co-Player of the Year by the Iowa Girls Coaches Association and was named to the All-State Elite team for the second straight year.
Payton’s sister Jadyn recently committed to play volleyball at UNI.
I’m beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Louisville! I am thankful for everyone who has helped me become the player and person I am today. So blessed to have this amazing opportunity! GO CARDS ❤️ pic.twitter.com/cE1e0Celh3
