Alpena’s DeRocher signs to play basketball & volleyball at ACC

ALPENA, Mich. — Back in July 2019, Alpena native Chris DeRocher signed his National Letter of Intent to play basketball and to continue his education at Alpena Community College. This upcoming fall, another DeRocher will be heading to Alpena Community College to play college sports.

Monday evening, Allie DeRocher signed her National Letter of Intent to play basketball and volleyball for the Ladyjacks.

“I’m very excited to play at the collegiate level,” said DeRocher. “It’s really cool that I still get to play two sports in my hometown.”

As an Alpena Wildcat, DeRocher has earned All-Big North Conference honors in both sports. To add to her impressive resume, DeRocher earned All-Region honors for volleyball in three consecutive seasons (2018-2020).  On top of that, she was also named to the all-region dream team (2020) during her senior season.

At this time, Allie isn’t sure what she wants to major in at Alpena Community College. However, she’s thinking about studying Sports Management.
