CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia volleyball head coach Shannon Wells announced the addition of Milan Gomillion, a transfer defensive specialist/libero from the University of Maryland, on Wednesday (June 7). Gomillion is set to begin training with the Cavaliers this summer.
“We are very excited about the addition of Milan to our program,” said Wells. “She has a proven track record of being one of the best liberos in the Big Ten and we expect her to make an immediate impact in our program. Within the first few hours of her visit, you could get a sense for how much Milan cares about the people around her and how motivated she is to help us continue to build UVA into an NCAA Tournament team. She is a great addition to our deep ball control unit, and we are looking forward to her joining our program in just a few weeks.”
Gomillion comes to UVA with two years of eligibility after serving as the Terrapins’ starting libero the last two seasons (2021-22). In 2021, her freshman season, Gomillion led the Big Ten in digs per set (4.67), while finishing sixth in 2022. In addition to leading the Terrapins in digs last year, Gomillion finished second on the team in service aces (32) and was one of two UMD players to touch the floor in all 119 possible sets. She recorded a career-high 31 digs against Michigan last season. Against Virginia in 2021, she notched a season-high 24 digs and was also tabbed Big Ten Freshman of the Week twice.
Gomillion attended Annapolis Area Christian School her freshman and sophomore seasons (2017-19) before being homeschooled her junior and senior years of high school. At AACS, Gomillion led her team to an IAAM Championship title in 2017 after the Eagles finished 17-1 on the season. She was also named first team all-conference and all-county. Gomillion played club for Metro Volleyball Club from 2015-21 and was tabbed a top-150 prospect in her class, according to PrepVolleyball.com.
