Former libero and VFL Ellen Mullins will receive a distinct honor on Thursday night when Father Ryan High School in Nashville retires her jersey in a pre-match ceremony at the Catignani-Drennan Fieldhouse at 5:30 p.m. CT.
In her distinguished time with the UT volleyball program, Mullins set six program records for the Orange and White. She is currently the Lady Vols' all-time leader in career digs with 1,801 scoops over four seasons. She also set the single-season marks for digs in 2013 during her senior campaign when she racked up 640 digs in 32 matches last year.
Mullins was a two-time AVCA All-American as well as a two-time AVCA All-South Region selection. Over her career, she also earned seven SEC Defensive Player of the Week accolades.
Mullins started all four seasons of her prep career at Father Ryan, garnering All-State and All-Region accolades each season. She helped Father Ryan reach the state championship match in each year of her career and was also recognized as an honor roll student.
