Hayley Harmon's fiercely competitive drive will help lead the Horned Frogs in her fourth and final year in the Purple and White. With the loss of top offensive threats Ellen Rehme and Dominika Szabo on the outside, Harmon and her heavy swing look to step into a featured role for the Frogs.
Junior Season (2004)
Harmon appeared in 14 matches in 2004, starting in two consecutive matches against Grambling State and Prairie View A&M during the late September TCU Molten Invitational. Her best match came against Grambling, when she shot 16 for 35 and a .314 average with eight digs. Both the kill and attack tallies were career highs for the junior. She often swung with great accuracy, averaging about .300 in six matches and posting zero errors in six contests. Her season attack average of .285 ranks fifth highest in the books, and her 82 career total blocks ties her for 15th.
Sophomore Season (2003)
Harmon competed in 30 matches in her second season, earning her lone start against the Marquette Golden Eagles on November 1. The match was her best of the season, as she tallied nine kills, 13 digs, and five blocks for the evening. The 13 dig total was a new career high for her. Harmon led the Frogs in blocks for three matches and topped the team in kills once. She is in the top 20 for several career categories, including blocks per game (13th - 0.52), blocks (14th - 76), matches played (18th - 59), games played (18th - 145), and kills (19th - 184). Harmon was one of nine players to be named to the Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll.
Freshman Season (2002)
Harmon played in all but one match in 2002, starting on 18 occasions with her first coming versus Conference USA-foe Houston at the Crowne Plaza/Rice Invitational on September 7. She led the team in blocks seven times, and service aces on six occasions. She tallied the second-most blocks on the team during the season with 60, behind only freshman-cohort Erin Estep. Her 11 blocks at UT-Pan Am on September 27 earned her the No. 2 spot on the list for single-match blocks in school history. Harmon broke into the top 10 for blocks per game with 0.71 (good for 8th), and the top 20 for career kills per game (17th - 1.35), attack percentage (14th - .193), aces per game (17th - 0.17), and blocks (14th - 60) after only her first season. She set a career-high for kills against Houston at the C-USA Tournament with 11, and had three assists at Saint Louis in mid-October. Harmon earned her first-ever double-double at UT-Pan Am with 10 kills and 11 blocks. She set the TCU Volleyball weight room record in the hang clean with 175 pounds. Harmon was one of seven volleyball players to earn Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll accolades.
Harmon competed for Oak Park High School, where she was a four-year varsity starter and two-year captain for coach Linda Jones. Harmon holds the school records for career and single-season kills. During her senior year, she was named to all-conference and all-district first teams and the team MVP. She was named to the all-conference, all-district, all-Northland and all-region first teams, all-metro Kansas City second team and team MVP her junior year; and to the all-conference and all-district second teams as a sophomore. A member of Team KC volleyball club, a national level team, for eight years, Harmon was actively involved in Young Life and chose TCU over Syracuse University and Southeast Missouri State.
Born on April 5, 1984, Hayley Feren Harmon is the daughter of Ron Harmon and Jane Harmon. She is a early childhood education major at TCU. Her sister, Brooke, played volleyball at William Woods (Mo.) University.
