Multiple Teams · Girls Volleyball – Ava Biesterfeld Signs with Fontbonne University – 2020


Ritenour High School is proud to announce the signing of Ava Biesterfeld to play Volleyball at Fontbonne University.

This is a special moment as we get to witness Ava’s future in the making.

By earning the right to participate in collegiate athletics, she will get to continue on, and accomplishing what only most can dream of.

It is a honor to achieve such a chance, and it was earned through a culmination of hard work in and out of the classroom!

Below is how Ava came to her decision:

Fontbonne University was my number one pick from the very beginning!

I will be majoring in Dietetics and I heard they have a very good program. I’ve heard from many people Fontbonne is like a big family and I feel I can really grow in their environment.

After my senior season ended, I had pretty much given up on the idea of playing volleyball in college. I had emailed many coaches and it just didn’t work out. Months later I decided to email the Fontbonne coach one last time and got a response saying he’d love for me to be part of the Fontbonne volleyball family!

I have always been very passionate about volleyball and ready to lay it all out on the court.

I owe so much to Coach Kim!

She’s pushed me and showed me how much I am capable of!

This signing is a testament to the commitment of our school, students and community here at Ritenour.

On behalf of the Athletic Department we would like to congratulate Ava on her accomplishments and future success!
