Utah Volleyball Signs Courtney Oilar For 2022 Season
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Volleyball continues to add tremendous talent to its roster for the 2022 season as the program has signed pin hitter Courtney Oilar. Oilar, who is a rising sophomore, was a first team AVCA All-American from Feather River College in her first collegiate season this past fall.
"Courtney is a dynamic athlete, a great competitor and an aggressive attacker and blocker," said head coach Beth Launiere. "She comes from a top junior college with a coach that prepares athletes well for the next level. We can't wait for her to join our team and program."
Oilar is coming off a freshman season where she averaged a team-best 2.93 kills per set at the pin positions and recorded a .348 hitting percentage. Oilar posted double-digit kills in 16 matches and earned a season-best 16 kills on two occasions. Her first 16-kill performance was earned on .750 hitting after recording 20 attempts with just one error.
The Redding, Calif. native led Feather River in kills per set this past season and was third on the team in hitting percentage. She also collected the second-most blocks on the team. She played in all 34 matches and 109 sets for Feather River, and totaled 66 blocks. Oilar was named an AVCA First Team All-American for two-year colleges, as well as earning a nod on the All-State and All-Region teams. She helped guide the Golden Eagles to a 32-2 overall record last year as a freshman.
Oilar attended Shasta High School prior to her one-year career at Feather River. She posted 373 kills her senior season while hitting at a .446 clip. Oilar also collected 77 blocks during her senior campaign and was a first-team All-Northern Section honoree.
She is set to join KJ Burgess and Viktoria Walgren, who enrolled early and are currently on campus, along with Ashley West and Iliana Linahan as newcomers to next year's team.
