Kleekamp, a 5-11 senior outside hitter, plays all the way around for the Lady Jays and hardly ever leaves the floor.

She has 204 kills on the season, averaging 3.29 per game, to go along with 545 digs, 16 blocks and 32 assists. She has a serving percentage of 98.9 percent with 14 aces.

Kleekamp is a four-year varsity player and has played a major role in Washington winning the Hermann Tournament for four consecutive seasons. She recorded 37 kills, nine in the championship game against Borgia, and 58 digs during this year’s Hermann Tournament.

“Josie is a leader to her team. She challenges them at practice and encourages them throughout games,” said Washington Head Coach Susan Harms. “She pushes herself and her teammates to stay energized and focused for each point. She’s a huge part of our team’s success.”
