SHAWNEE – Oklahoma Baptist volleyball added Jenna Gremmel and Destiny Temple on National Signing Day.
Gremmel is a senior at Wahlert Catholic High School, where she captured two State Championships under the coaching of Lindsey Beaves. The 6-0 setter from Dubuque, Iowa, is a two-time First Team Tri-State Area player, she was twice named Second Team All-State and she earned State All-Tournament Team honors in 2016 and 2017. She is also a member of the National Honor Society.
"I loved the community at OBU, and I wanted a team and coach that are dedicated to hard work. I thought that OBU was a great fit for my education and athletic desires," said Gremmel.
Jenna is the daughter of John and Julie Gremmel.
Temple is a senior at Mountain Pointe High School in Phoenix, Arizona. The 5-9 outside hitter won a first-round matchup at State while competing for Coach Karen Grey.
She was also recruited by Alaska-Anchorage, Providence College, and Alcorn State.
"I love what I saw when I came to OBU. The community was something that reminded me of home, so it would make my transition from home to OBU easier. Coach [Anna] Howle really drew me in with her love for the game and her girls," said Temple. "OBU will allow me to continue to be a strong role model for my two younger brothers. Oklahoma Baptist University turned out to be everything I was looking for and more!"
