Notes: A four-year letterwinner between Dorman High School and Spartanburg High School, Hough finished her high school career winning back-to-back 5A State Championships at Dorman in 2016 and 2017. Following her senior campaign, Hough was named a Second Team All-Area honoree by the Spartanburg Herald-Journal after posting 223 kills with a .392 hitting percentage with a team-best kill rate of 52 percent while also leading the team with 59 blocks. Three times between Dorman and Spartanburg, Hough was tabbed an All-Region honoree while also being named an All-State honoree after her senior season. Away from Dorman, Hough plays club for Upward Stars 18 under head coach Corey Helle. Upon arrival at Elon, Hough plans to major in Communications.

Quoting Coach Tendler: “We are excited to welcome Garland and her family to Elon University and our volleyball program. We can’t wait for her to use her offensive and defensive terminating abilities in an Elon jersey. She plays with a lot of passion and fights to win every point. Adding Garland gives us more balance in our 2018 recruiting class and fills a need at the middle blocking position. We look forward to having our entire team together in August as we start our first season in Schar Center.”

Hough joins Leah Daniel, Haylie Clark and Kellyn Trowse as members of the 2018 class. For more information about Daniel, Clark and Trowse, click here.
