WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - As part of our countdown to the season, we will give you the inside scoop on one of our 16 players. With 16 days left until the home opener, we introduce redshirt junior Kaisley Fisher, a 6-3 middle blocker from Plainfield, Ill.
Coming to Purdue as one of prepvolleyball.com's Top 250 Senior Aces, Fisher has battled injuries that have kept her off the court. A shoulder injury cut short her true freshman season after just two matches. The next season, the middle saw action in nine matches, putting up 16 blocks in 15 sets. She also put down a career-best five kills and seven blocks after earning the start against Rice. Fisher missed the entire 2013 season recovering from offseason knee surgery.
Fisher, who is ready to get back on the court at full strength, adds depth to an already strong group of middles alongside senior KiKi Jones, redshirt sophomore Faye Adelaja and true freshman Danielle Cuttino.
Let's get to know Kaisley a little bit better.
