Hall of Fame Inductee - LeaAnn Allen-Eickelschulte

Few high school athletes have collected as many varsity letters as LeaAnn Allen-Eickelschulte. A graduate of the class of 1987, her 8 letters (2-softball, 3-basketball & 3-volleyball) rank her among the top performers of all-time. Her volleyball talent earned Allen-Eickelschulte an athletic scholarship to Murray State University in Kentucky. It was there that she shined. Allen-Eickelschulte became a starter as a freshman - a spot she would hold all four years. During her stay at Murray State Allen-Eickelschulte helped rebuild the volleyball program. They won the Ohio Valley Conference title her junior year and went on to play in the Women's Invitational Volleyball Championship. She was chosen as captain of the team for three seasons and during that time was recognized on numerous occasions for her excellence on the playing surface. Allen-Eickelschulte was twice named as the teams most valuable player - twice named as an All-Conference standout - and twice named to the OVC all tournament team. But perhaps the honors earned for her academic achievements stand out the most. Allen-Eickelschulte received the Scholar Athlete Award on two occasions - was given the Ohio Valley Conference Scholar Athlete Award - the Ohio Valley Conference Academic Medal of Honor - Athletic Director's Character Award and was named to the GTE-COSIDA Academic All-American Team. After graduating from Murray State, with a degree in computer science and math, she returned to Quincy and has given something back. Her efforts in coaching the QHS volleyball club for those 18 and under the past four years are noted - as is the fact she is an United States Volleyball Association Impact trained coach. LeaAnn Allen-Eickelschulte, her husband Mark and family make their home in Quincy.
