Cesar Trigo de Serrano, a 6-foot-3 transfer, originally from Miami, FL, will attend the Mount and play volleyball this coming season for the Lions, Mount Head Coach Ryan Lengerich announced today.
“Cesar is a big-time player with high-level playing experience,’’ Lengerich said. “I have no doubt he will be a cornerstone and natural leader for the team this coming season.”
The left-handed attacker will play opposite for the Lions in the 2014 season. Trigo de Serrano was a standout for Division II Mount Olive College in North Carolina.
He intends to finish his psychology degree at the Mount and use the degree to help children.
“Sometimes the stars align for both a program and for a student-athlete and this is the case with Cesar,” Lengerich added. “He will be a huge addition to the program we are building, and the Mount gives him a chance to finish his degree and make a difference in the community.”
He joins Grant Meeks, Fort Wayne, IN, Zach Kuebler, Hilliard, OH, Richie Planek, Wheaton, IL, Toby Birnbrich, Columbus, OH, and Brett Cooper and Josh Schneider of Cincinnati as first-year players for the upcoming season.
Trigo de Serrano chose to attend the Mount because of its Catholic values. He said his parents, Alba and Agustin Trigo de Serrano, both originally from Cuba, are his inspiration.
