Victor is key to Logan volley, girls basketball squads

Victors and a Champion have been leading the Logansport volleyball program in recent years. And the Berries are once again shooting for an elusive victorious championship in sectional play.

A key to the Berries’ hopes is senior starting left-side hitter Kiley Victor, the younger sister of former Berry standout Kelsey Victor, who is now a red-shirt sophomore volleyball player at Valparaiso and recently won MVP honors at IU’s Hoosier Classic.

Kiley’s father is Mark Victor, the Logansport boys basketball coach. Kiley’s mother, Sue Victor, was the first woman to receive an athletic scholarship at Purdue University as a basketball player. She also has experience coaching basketball as a head coach at Frontier and as an assistant at Logansport under Jerry Hoover in Hoover’s early years with the program.

Kiley’s brother, K.C. Victor, was a standout basketball player for the Berries.

“Both her parents are coaches. She’s been around sports all her life,” Hoover said. “She understands the game intrinsically. She’s a good player, a good team player.”

Hoover added that Kiley, like her siblings and parents, is a gifted athlete.

“I’m not sure she isn’t the best athlete in the school,” he said. “Pound for pound, inch for inch, I’m not sure is she is not the best athlete in Logansport High School. She’s a tremendous athlete, running and jumping, quickness and so forth.”

And Kiley is not afraid to mix it up against bigger players on the basketball court.

“I like the challenge,” she said. “I’m only 5-10, so it’s always fun to try and outrebound a bigger player.”

Hoover said Kiley is a versatile player as she’s key inside but will also often guard a team’s best player on the perimeter.
