Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) head beach volleyball coach Taylor Mott has added Trevecca transfer, Chloee McDaniel, to the Governors roster for the 2023 beach season.
“Chloee’s mother owns a beach club in Nashville; so, she has grown up around beach volleyball,” said associate beach volleyball head coach Travis Leblanc. “Chloee had a great career at Trevecca and with her experience, she will be able to come in and compete in our program immediately.”
McDaniel began her collegiate career at Missouri State, where she was the first player to sign a National Letter of Intent to play beach volleyball for the Bears. McDaniel won nine matches during her lone season in Springfield, Missouri with four wins coming from the No. 1 position and five wins coming at the No. 2 line.
After her freshman season, the Hendersonville, Tennessee native transferred to Trevecca, where she played on the indoor volleyball team. In her first season at Trevecca, McDaniel averaged 8.35 assists per set in 113 sets played.
The 5-8 setter was even better during the COVID-shortened 2020 season, averaging 9.13 assists per set in the 39 sets she appeared in. During her final season as a Trojan, McDaniel racked up a career-best 1,013 assists and averaged 9.13 assists per set during the 11 sets she played. McDaniel also averaged a career-best 2.76 digs per set during her final year at Trevecca.
Before her collegiate career, McDaniel was a four-time all-conference and all-region selection at Beech High School in Hendersonville, Tennessee. McDaniel’s sister, Hailee, played volleyball at Maryville College and her sisters, Ellee and Rylee, are currently on the volleyball team at Chattanooga State.
