KENNESAW, Ga. – Kennesaw State volleyball alumni Liesl Engelbrecht will continue her career at the professional level, signing a contract with Switzerland club team Geneve Volley.
 
Engelbrecht is the first volleyball alumni under Head Coach Keith Schunzel to sign a professional contract. She will join the club this August for a one-year stint.
 
"Liesl will go down as one of the best players to ever put on a Kennesaw State volleyball jersey," exclaimed Schunzel. "Her long list of accomplishments and awards as a college student-athlete are hard earned and well deserved. The way that she represented herself and this university in her time here was exceptional. And now we are thrilled for her that she will be our staff's first player to represent KSU in the professional ranks overseas. We can't wait to see what great things Liesl will do next."
 
Geneve Volley is coming off its first full season in seven years in the top Swiss league, National League A, in 2018-19. The club gained its promotion after earning a second-place finish in the National League B standings during the 2017-18 campaign.
 
Englebrecht will be one of three U.S. players on the club roster, including former Kansas standout Anna Church and current captain Caitlin DeWitt formerly of Loyola Marymount.
 
The Owls' all-time career leader for blocks, Engelbrecht is coming off a stellar career at KSU.
 
The Duluth, Ga., native ranks among KSU's top-10 all-time for career kills, attack percentage, blocks, blocks per set, total points and matches played. She currently holds the No. 1 spot for career blocks with 367 and attack percentage hitting .308, the only Owl in history to log over 300 blocks and a career hitting percentage above .300.
 
Engelbrecht is the only Owl in program history to log double-digit blocks in four games throughout her career, and one of two Owls all-time to record a double-double in blocks and kills.
 
A three-time ASUN All-Conference honoree, Engelbrecht was the first Owl in program history to garner AVCA All-Region accolades following the 2017 season.
