Nevershi Ellis is a Sophomore outside hitter on the Delaware State women’s volleyball team. Ellis grew up in Chicago, IL where she played volleyball at De La Salle High School. She was a member of three conference championship teams and led the team in kills for her last two seasons and led in blocks as a senior. In addition to playing for her high school, Ellis also competed with Club Kace, an AAU Travel team.
During her freshman season, Ellis competed in all 27 matches and finished fifth on the team with 122 digs, 32 blocks, 10 aces, and 9 assists. She had her career best number of digs against UMES last September.
Ellis was introduced to volleyball during a family reunion and then shortly after, she started playing for her elementary school. The thing she loves most about volleyball is the team aspect of the sport, and she has fun while playing. One thing that most people don’t know about Ellis is that she was a cheerleader in high school.
Ellis is a very outgoing person and when she’s not playing volleyball, she likes to be around her friends and enjoys going to social events.
