The nationally ranked Cowley College volleyball team has signed Noemi Neyers from Szeged, Hungary, to begin her college career in the fall of 2023.

Nyers, a 6-foot-1 middle hitter, prepped at SZTE Gyakorlo Gimnazium es Altalanos Iskola in Szeged, Hungary.

She began playing volleyball in 2011 for Szeged Volleyball and remained there until coming to Cowley. She also competed for the Hungarian national team in 2019 and 2021. In 2019, she led her Hungarian national team to a third place finish in the international tournament.

In 2020, she played on two teams for Szeged Volleyball and won third and fourth place in the national tournament. In 2021, her teams finished second and sixth place in the national tournament. For her efforts, she was given the Director’s commendation for a national running competition, named best player in the tournament, and other special awards.

“Noemi is an outstanding player and a great addition to our program. She will add a dominant presence to our offense and defense with her athleticism, volleyball IQ, and court awareness,” Cowley head coach Steven Gream said. “Noemi is a strong and aggressive middle who puts up a solid block and can attack opponents with a variety of sets with speed and power.

“These attributes are perfect for our style of play at Cowley. Her national team experience will be invaluable as she makes the transition to the college game. We are excited to have her as a part of our program at Cowley.”

Nyers is the daughter of Dr. Tamas Nyers and Adrienn Nyers of Szeged, Hungary.
