On November 19, 2020, Ella Connor signed a National Letter of Intent to play Division 1 college beach volleyball at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo under legendary coach Todd Rogers, a former professional beach volleyball player and gold medalist in the 2008 Summer Olympic games.
Earning a college scholarship at any collegiate level is a tremendous accomplishment, but to earn one at the Division 1 level is truly noteworthy and special. In fact, according to our records, in our school’s history of over 50 years Seabury Hall has had only four girls earn Division 1 scholarships for volleyball prior to Ella. These included Shayla Hoeft and Amy Ozee in 2106, Lecca Roberts in 2004, and, Kaimana Brummel in 2003, the first girl from Maui to receive a D1 volleyball scholarship straight out of high school.
Over the course of the last 3 years in the program, Ella has established herself as the top overall female player in the MIL and joins those legends listed above as one of the all-time greats in our school's history. On behalf of the Seabury Hall athletic department, we wish her nothing but the best of luck in her future as she takes her game to the next level. Congratulations Ella!!!
