Chantal Birbaum, Outside hitter for DC3 volleyball for the last two years, committed to continue her volleyball career at Florida International University.
This will make the third Conquistador from last year’s squad to go on and play at a Division 1 NCAA college. Of course the other two are Setter Alyse Barclay (Nicholls State) and all conference Middle Blocker Victoria Cross(Jacksonville State).
Birbaum finished the year, leading the Lady Conquistadors in Kills with 326 , second in aces with 44, along with 283 digs.
She came to Dodge City Community College as a freshman and leaving for Florida with an Associate’s degree.
Born and raised in Switzerland, she made a home out of Dodge City for the last two years. She is going to FIU to be a member of their sand volleyball program.
“We hope Chantal will enjoy her new home down in Florida. She was a big part of our volleyball family here. We will miss her”.
