Recruiting Update: Annie Cate Fitzpatrick (2020 OH) Verbals to Penn State

Annie Cate Fitzpatrick, a 6-0 OH from Trinity Catholic High School in Ocala FL, has verbally committed to Penn State for 2020 (#gonittanylions2020).  Annie Cate was a member of  the Florida Region Girls’ International Youth (GIY) All-Star team that captured a gold medal at the 2017 USA Volleyball High Performance Championships in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and was named First Team All-County in 2016 by the Ocala Star Banner, when she was second in the county with 4.4 kills per set.

On August 24, 2017, she registered 11 kills, 2 aces, four digs and a block in a match against Orlando Bishop Moore, which had just named the nation’s No. 1 high school team.  Despite Annie Cate’s performance, Trinity Catholic fell to Bishop Moore (a team that features six D1 prospects — most of whom are juniors) 25-16, 25-21, 25-19.
