Taylor Simpson leaves Missouri volleyball

Tags: Volleyball

After 14 matches as a Tiger, sophomore outside hitter Taylor Simpson has left the Missouri volleyball program.

According to a press release from the team given before Sunday’s game with Mississippi State, Simpson left due to personal reasons. She averaged 2.51 kills per game and had six kills in her final match as a Tiger against Georgia on Sept. 30. She did not travel with the team last weekend in its games against Tennessee and Alabama on the road.

Simpson’s leave marks the second time she has left a program due to personal reasons. In July, she came to Missouri as a transfer from Florida State, where she spent just one week on campus.

“Obviously we wish nothing but the best for Taylor moving forward,” Kreklow said in the news release. “This was a tough decision for Taylor and her family and we are thankful for the effort that she gave us while she was here. We wish her well as she moves forward.”

Freshman outside hitter Regan Peltier took Simpson’s starting spot in Sunday’s game with the Bulldogs.
