Ellen Rehme is in her second season as a Horned Frog and looks to finish her collegiate career on a strong note. One of two Frog seniors, she will be expected to lead the squad both on and off the court. Her expectations for tough play and a desire to win will push the team to greater heights. Playing opposite, Rehme is one of four returning starters from last season's squad.
Junior Season (2003)
Arriving at TCU in the spring of 2003 as the most highly-touted newcomer of the Lewis era, Rehme's impact was felt throughout the year. First in spring competition, then as the fall began, Rehme's desire for success helped the squad flourish. She had an outstanding match against Virginia Tech at the Outback Wolfpack Classic in which she notched 19 kills, 15 digs and 6.0 blocks en route to a team-high 27.0 points for the match. Rehme started all 34 matches in which she played, competing in 117 games. In 2003, she led the squad in kills per game (3.82) and points per contest (4.43). Rehme was second for the season in kills (447), blocks (59.0), digs (307), digs per game (2.62) and total points (518.5). She tallied 13 double-doubles in her first season as a Frog. In 16 matches, Rehme led the team in kills, while she led the squad in attacks on 18 occasions. She posted 24 matches with double-figure kills, including four with 20 or more kills. In addition, Rehme had double-figure digs 14 times during her junior campaign. A tough competitor throughout preseason tournament action, Rehme was named to four all-tournament teams (College of Charleston, Outback Wolfpack Classic, TCU Adidas Invitational and TCU Molten Invitational), and earned MVP honors at the Adidas Invitational. Her six aces at Prairie View A&M tied her for the school record for service aces in a match. In 2003, she also put her name on the single-season records lists for aces per game (tied for 3rd - 0.34), kills per game (4th - 3.82), matches played (tied for 4th - 34), kills (5th - 447), aces (tied for 5th - 40), total attacks (6th - 1,104), attack percentage (9th - .255), and digs (9th - 307). In just one season, Rehme already cracked the TCU top-10 career lists for kills per game (1st - 3.82), aces per game (tied for 2nd - 0.34), attack percentage (4th - .255), digs per game (6th - 2.62), and kills (10th - 447). Rehme was one of nine Horned Frog volleyball players to be named to the Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll.
Prior to TCU
While at Florida, Rehme played in 26 of 37 matches in her sophomore season and 25 of 30 matches as a freshman. Her playing time was limited due to more experienced players in front of her. She registered a career-high two kills against Mississippi State on October 11, 2002, and had a solid match on August 30, 2002 versus Conference USA opponent UAB with nine attacks and four digs. In 2002, Rehme earned Academic All-SEC honors. Prior to beginning her collegiate career at Florida, Rehme was a member of the 2000 Junior National Training Team.
Rehme was a four-year varsity volleyball player at Cathedral High School under head coach Jean Kesterson. The team won two state championships and finished as runners-up once during her career. She was named a 2000 high school all-American, as well as earning all-state (1999-2000) and all-city (1998-2000) volleyball honors. Rehme was a two-time Metro Super Team selection, garnering the honors in 1999 and 2000. As a senior, she was named Indianapolis' Athlete of the Year. She also played four years of prep basketball and competed in track. Her prep basketball team won state during her junior and senior years, and Rehme was named the state game's MVP as a junior. She also won the city high jump championship during her junior campaign.
