Payton Addink, a junior-to-be at Sun Prairie, announced on Twitter that she plans to play women’s volleyball at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

Addink is a 6-foot-1 outside hitter for the Cardinals. She is listed as an outside hitter and defensive specialist in club volleyball.

Sun Prairie won the Big Eight Conference dual and tournament titles last season, despite 10 seniors departing from the previous year’s team. Sun Prairie advanced to the WIAA Division 1 state tournament, the only area team to reach state in any division.

Addink tweeted: "I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at University of Minnesota-Duluth! Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way!”
