CHICAGO - UIC head volleyball coach Katie Schumacher-Cawley announced Thursday (Jan. 23) that Allison O'Reilly, a high school senior from Elgin, Ill., will join the Flames next season.

A 5-foot-4 defensive specialist from Burlington Central High School, O'Reilly helped lead the Rockets to conference and regional championships this past season. The Rockets appeared in the 2013 IHSA Sectional Championship match, where they fell to Marian Central Catholic High School.

"Allie is an excellent addition to our program," said Schumacher-Cawley. "She plays hard and will bring great energy to the gym."

O'Reilly earned All-Conference (Big Northern) and All-Area honors the past two seasons. She was also named Honorable Mention All-State during the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

O'Reilly set Burlington Central's single-season dig record with 578 in 2012 and then broke her own record with 681 digs (21 digs per match) as a senior in 2013. She also collected 38 service aces during her senior season. O'Reilly holds the Big Northern Conference record with 1,479 career digs.

During club season, O'Reilly played six years for Club Fusion based out of Marengo. With O'Reilly on the squad, Club Fusion finished third at the 15 & Under National Championships and won the 17 & Under Pre-National Championships.

O'Reilly is the fourth addition for the 2014 season. She will join:

Angela Evans - 6-foot-0 middle blocker from Elkins Park, Pa.
Kyisha Hunt - 5-foot-10 outside hitter from Kankakee, Ill.
