SHAW ATHLETICS CELEBRATES WOMEN’S MONTH: KEVEESHA WATTLEY

SHAW ATHLETICS CELEBRATES WOMEN’S MONTH: KEVEESHA WATTLEY

RALEIGH, N.C. – One of the most powerful hitters to ever wear the Garnet and White, Keveesha Wattley was a prolific right-side hitter for the Shaw University women's volleyball program during the 2015-2018 seasons.

 

Wattley was a 4X All-CIAA recipient, 3X Southern Division Champion, 3X All-Tournament Team honoree, 2X CIAA Champion, 2X NCAA Tournament participant, 2X CIAA Runner-Up Champion and All-NCCSIA Second Team selectee. After suffering a major knee injury during the Lady Bears championship run in 2016 – her sophomore season, Wattley led the team in kills (221) while ranking fifth amongst the CIAA in kills per set during her junior campaign (2017).

 

Although Shaw fell short of a CIAA title in 2017, Wattley would go on to become the CIAA's Offensive Player of the Year in 2018 and the Tournament's Most Valuable Player after leading the Lady Bears to its second championship title in four seasons. To cap off her exceptional senior season, Wattley eclipsed her 1,000th career kill on Nov. 2, 2019 versus Saint Augustine's – joining teammate Kelly Murphy as the fifth player to reach the milestone in kills and second in the last four years.

 

For her career, Wattley amassed 1,045 total kills, 207 digs, 180 blocks, 19 assists and eight service aces in 115 matches played.
