Somebody that can do just about anything she puts her mind to.Kae Sechrest, UL Head Volleyball Coach
This Union Local athlete can bump and set but you don’t want the rath of her spike.
Torre Kildow started playing volleyball in the sixth grade and now is in her fourth season on varsity.
She is primarily an outside hitter and plays back row.
I’ve always loved it but probably like my freshman or sophomore year I really started taking it seriously and falling in love with it.Torre Kildow, UL Senior
She’s a three-sport athlete, thriving in basketball and softball as well.
UL head coach Kae Sechrest says Torre has been a leader since day one.
When she was a freshman, I knew she was special. She was tall. She had grown over the summer like six to eight inches, and she was just a beast….She is somebody that I know that when we need a kill or we need the energy, that all I have to do is says, Torre go for it, and she will. She’s just improved leaps and boundsKae Sechrest, UL Head Volleyball Coach
Spiking is her specialty.
Torre holds several school records with over 1,500 kills and over 800 digs.
Competitors fear her spike…so how’d she get so good?
I guess my height helps but I’ve worked on jumping a lot to get a higher vertical.Torre Kildow, UL Senior
