Ashley Maack, senior setter from Rothsay, has signed a national letter of intent to play volleyball for the Minnesota State Community and Technical College Spartans.
Ashley is a four-year starter for the Tigers in volleyball, receiving all-conference honors her junior and senior years. Ashley was also voted her team's MVP both her sophomore and senior years. She is a two-year all-state academic athlete and finished her career with 1,441 set assists with 98 percent set efficiency.
"Ashley not only is a great setter, but brings a lot of experience to the court," said Spartan volleyball coach Terri Strom. "She is a versatile player who can do a lot of things. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know Ashley and be a part of developing her skills at the collegiate level."
Maack is also a four-year starter for the Tiger basketball team, earning all-conference honors twice and honorable mention all-conference status once. She was the 2014 team MVP and Best Offensive Player, led her team with 13 points per game, was a Little Eight Conference All-Conference selection and an Academic All-State selection.
"We are excited Ashley has made the decision to continue her education and athletics at M State," said women's basketball coach Janice Hendrickson. "She is a talented player with a great love of the game."
Ashley is the daughter of Shannon and Rhonda Maack of Rothsay.

Lady Spartan Volleyball Coach Terri Strom recently signed three recruits to play in the fall.
Miranda Lockhart is a middle hitter from Perham. She received All-Conference honors in 2011 and 2012 and led Perham in kills and blocks her senior year.
Jacquelyn Imsandee is a middle hitter from New York Mills. She earned the Team Eagle Award and was named All-Conference honorable mention her senior year.
"I look forward to coaching both of these young ladies," said Strom. "They both will provide some stability in our front row as the Spartans lose most of their hitters from last year's National Tournament team."
Reva Renollet is a setter from International Falls. She was her team's MVP for 2011 and 2012. She received All-Iron Conference honors the past two seasons and was named to the All-Arrowhead Conference in 2012.
"Reva is left-handed setter who will provide some extra hitting power on offense and chaos for opposing defenses," said Strom.
