Lady Cardinal volleyball coach Aleah Hayes has announced the signing of Jade Melton.
Melton hails from Hayes’ home state of Missouri, where she was a highly-awarded, record-setting performer at Hallsville High School. She is 5-9 and plays the outside position.
“We are extremely excited to add Jade to our roster, as she will bring excitement and leadership to our team,” Hayes said. “She is athletic and competitive, so I look forward to how she will impact the program in a very positive manner.”
In addition to being a four-year letter winner and three-year all-district performer, Melton was four times named Queen of the Court (team award) and set no fewer than four school kill records (single-game, single-day tournament, single-season and career) in the 2019 season. She was also named her team’s Player of the Year.
“Coach Hayes was a big part of why I chose TVCC,” Melton said. “She is intense and determined to make her team the best volleyball players they be on and off the court.
“Another reason I chose TVCC was because of the people at TVCC and in Athens. When I visited, the players, coaches, staff and community were so welcoming. There was a family atmosphere I want to experience.”
