CK’s Lingenbrink went the extra mile to land volleyball scholarship

One of the benefits of Camryn Lingenbrink graduating from Central Kitsap High School in December of 2021, a full six months ahead of schedule, is that the Cougar volleyball standout gave herself more time to seek out a college program.

Lingenbrink found one after temporarily moving to Utah in January to play for a club program based in Salt Lake City. She’s headed to Tulsa University, an NCAA Division I program in Oklahoma.

“My first national qualifier was in Salt Lake,” said Lingenbrink, who gathered Friday with other college-bound Central Kitsap student-athletes for a signing ceremony at the high school. “Right after one of my matches, (a Tulsa coach) came up to me and offered me a full ride right there.”

As a senior, Lingenbrink led Central Kitsap to a 15-6 record. The 6-foot-1 middle blocker/outside hitter earned South Sound Conference 3A co-offensive most valuable player honors after totaling 32 aces, 254 kills, 67 blocks and 85 digs.

Lingenbrink credited Central Kitsap volleyball coach Katie Pasi for pushing her early in her high school career. It was Pasi who first suggested that Lingenbrink could play in college — and not just any college.
