COLUMBUS, Ohio – Erin Chatman out of Bishop Hartley High School will be added to the Ohio State women’s volleyball roster and ready to compete for the 2014 season, announced head coach Geoff Carlston. The 5-foot-10 outside hitter played club ball with Mintonette, leading the team to a National Runner-Up finish in 2013.
“Erin is from our area, so I’ve had the opportunity to watch her grow as a person and a player over the past few years,” said Carlston. “It became obvious to me that she was a quality and talented young lady that we wanted to try make a part of our family. We’re thrilled Erin chose to be a Buckeye.”
Chatman lettered in three sports for the Bishop Hartley Hawks, including three times for head coach Mike Rahe’s volleyball squad. She also competed as a basketball post player and ran track. Erin and her high school team advanced to the Ohio Regional volleyball finals. As a senior, she put away 3.2 kills and nearly a block per set while touching over 10 feet. Chatman becomes the sixth Bishop Hartley High product to play collegiate volleyball in the last five years, and third to do so at the Division-I level.
The daughter of Jonathon and Sherri Chatman was born on Dec. 17, 1995 and intends to major in sports medicine at The Ohio State University.
