Shondell Signs Denver Setter Lorrin Poulter

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue volleyball head coach Dave Shondell has announced the signing of fifth year setter from Denver, Lorrin Poulter for the upcoming 2023 season.

“Lorrin is exactly what our team needs after Meg’s injury sidelined her for her final season,” Shondell said. “Lorrin is a Poulter. She is tough, determined, athletic, and a leader. When we watched her play match after match on tape from last season, we were convinced that she can compete at the top of the Big Ten. Personally, I love her quick feet, fast release of the ball, and that she serves the ball extremely tough. She’s a ‘no-nonsense’ athlete who steps on the floor to win. I think she has room to develop and our staff and team are ready to accommodate her efforts.”

Poulter, a 5-11 setter out of Aurora, Colorado, had a breakout year as a senior, earning All-Summit League First Team at Denver. The starter dished out a career-best 1,040 assists (10.20 per set) and 214 digs over 28 matches last fall in addition to securing six double-doubles. A stud behind the service line, Poulter posted more aces per set than any Big Ten player last season, registering .46 per set (47 on the year), a mark which checked in at 30th in the nation and second in the Summit League.

During her four years at Denver, Poulter played in 105 matches with 44 starts, including every game of her senior campaign. Poulter is just the third Pioneer in the program’s Division I era with at least 2,000 assists and 100 aces in her career.

Poulter will pursue a Communication and Leadership certification from Purdue. Her sister, Jordyn, is a setter on the U.S. National Team and guided the U.S. to a gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics alongside teammate and Purdue alum Annie Drews.

Fans can catch Poulter wearing the #6 jersey this fall.
