Nikki Bucholz

Player Profile

Assistant Coach

Alma Mater:
Franklin Pierce (2009)

Nikki Bucholz will coach the middle blockers for this upcoming season. She served as a graduate assistant coach at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania last season.

Bucholz graduated from Franklin Pierce University, a Division II school in New Hampshire, where she was a four-time All-Northeast 10 Conference player.

During her junior year, she was named to the All-Region Second Team in 2007. She was the first player to ever be named to an All-Region Team in Franklin Pierce's 20-year program history.

Her 159 total blocks led the Northeast-10 Conference, as did her 1.26 blocks per game.

At the completion of her four-year career at Franklin Pierce, Bucholz had guided the Ravens to four consecutive Northeast-10 Conference Championship appearances. She was also named conference player of the week five times and owns the school career record for kills with 1,271 and blocks with 493.

Aside from her statistics being atop of the record books, she was also a top-notch mentor. She was a two-time captain of the Franklin Pierce team that won 35 matches in two years under her leadership.

Bucholz also excelled in the classroom, as she graduated cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications. She was a three time First Team Academic All-Conference selection.

"What impressed me most about Nikki was her passion for volleyball and coaching," said coach Heard. "She is a student of the game and I believe she will make an immediate impact on our middles. I look forward to working with both of them."
