Cheyenne Mountain volleyball star is beach bound
College will be like a day at the beach for Monique Domme. Quite literally, actually.
The Cheyenne Mountain senior setter committed to Pepperdine’s volleyball program, in part because it presents her with the chance to play both indoor and outdoor at the next level.
“Pepperdine was my dream school to begin with,” Domme said. “It’s on the beach, it’s top 10; it just all worked out.”
Domme had committed to the University of Denver as a sophomore, but a coaching change caused her to reexamine the recruiting process. She attended a camp this summer on the Pepperdine’s Malibu, Calif., campus and was sold.
“It was grueling, 10 hours a day for five days,” Domme said. “But it was split indoor and outdoor so it was so much fun. That, and I just love California.”
Domme has been a key figure during Cheyenne Mountain’s current run of four consecutive 4A titles, including a perfect 31-0 run last season. She piled up 935 assists last year with just 34 errors and was named first-team all-state and a prepvolleyball.com All-American.
Pepperdine’s indoor volleyball is currently ranked No. 11 in the nation and its sand volleyball team won the national title last year in the first season it was officially sanctioned by the American Volleyball Coaches Association. The hope is that sand volleyball will grow into an official NCAA championship sport within the next four years.
