Suppelsa, a 2010 graduate of Livonia Churchill High School, became recognized by collegiate coaches locally after completing a successful career on the court for the Churchill Chargers. In 2006, Churchill reached the pinnacle of on-court success with a MHSAA Girls Volleyball State Championship. The following season, Suppelsa helped lead the Chargers to one of four-straight district crowns while the outside hitter was in high school.
As a junior, Suppelsa led the Chargers to a final four appearance after being crowned regional champions. The strong play earned her a nod on the All-Region and All-Area Honorable Mention teams. During her final campaign as a senior, Suppelsa and the Chargers would make it back-to-back trips to the final four in a season in which they were once again regional champions. The outside hitter's stellar senior season led her to All-Area (First Team), All-Region, and All-Kensington Lakes Activities Association (KLAA) honors. Suppelsa's play would also earn her a Second Team All-State selection and an invite to play at local community college power, Schoolcraft College.
At Schoolcraft, Suppelsa burst onto the scene as a freshman and was recognized for her play with Third Team All-Conference and All-Academic Team honors. As a sophomore, her work ethic in the classroom resulted in a repeat trip on the All-Academic Team.
The solid junior college play would briefly land Suppelsa at Concordia-Ann Arbor before she decided to head back to Schoolcraft to focus on academics.
A well-rounded student-athlete, Suppelsa has been a mainstay on the Schoolcraft College Dean's List since 2010. The outstanding work in the classroom resulted in Suppelsa becoming a Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society member.
Coach Baker on Suppelsa: I am very excited to have Sarah join the Mustang Volleyball Family. She is a dominant front row player that has a fantastic arm swing. I feel very fortunate to have added such an experienced player to our roster heading into 2013. We look forward to seeing Sarah in a Mustang uniform to finish out her collegiate playing career.
