Going West: QND's Kristen Gengenbacher verbals to University of San Diego volleyball

Quincy Notre Dame three-sport star Kristen Gengenbacher has verbally committed to the University of San Diego to play volleyball. KHQA learned of her decision through a family friend, as Kristen announced her plans on Sunday night.

The USD Toreros finished last season with a 21-7 overall record, including a 13-3 mark in the West Coast Conference. The school has made 16 career NCAA Tournament appearances, including 11 bids in the last 12 seasons.

The senior-to-be Gengenbacher and Quincy Notre Dame advanced to the regional finals in last year's IHSA 3A state tournament. The setter will be one of 6 seniors returning to the Lady Raiders lineup in the 2013 season.
