Pitt volleyball commit Trinity Thompson

Dan Fisher and Pitt volleyball are racking up commitments in the class of 2026 just about every day now.

Trinity Thompson — a 5-foot-9 libero/setter from Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas, Nev. — committed to Pitt Monday afternoon, she announced via social media. She’s now the third commitment in the class.

Thompson announced her decision on Instagram, writing:

“I am very excited and honored to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Pittsburgh! I want to give a huge thanks to God for blessing me with this amazing opportunity, as well as my parents, teammates, and coaches for their unconditional support in this process. I would definitely not be where I am today without the advice from my extraordinary mom who helps me with every problem or decision in my life and I am incredibly grateful for her.

“A special thank you to Coach Mel and Coach Ruben for guiding me through this process and always being there to make me better. I would also like to thank my strength and conditioning coaches, Coach Charles, Kiana, and Juice, for playing a big role in my overall development as an athlete and person. Most importantly, thank you to Coach Fisher, Kellen, Kama, Shaun, and Michael for allowing me to continue my academic and athletic career as a Pitt Panther.”

Thompson is a standout at Bishop Gorman, helping the Gaels to a Class-5A Nevada championship, and she led the state with 1,132 assists, adding 307 digs and 32 aces — with a near-perfect service rate.

She also competes for the Vegas Aces at the club level and was selected for the Nevada Preps All-Southern Nevada girl’s volleyball team after her sophomore season.

The Hawaiian-born Las Vegas native is a plus athlete, giving the Panthers a versatile offensive and defensive weapon in the years ahead.

Thompson is the third commitment in the class of 2026, joining top recruit Isabelle Hoppe and outside hitter/libero Izzy Masten, giving the Panthers a trio of high-potential rising high school juniors.

Pitt is bringing four freshmen in in the class of 2024 this season, middle blockers Bianca Garibaldi and Ryla Jones, setter/right-side hitter Kiana Dinn and libero Mallorie Meyer. The Panthers will also welcome two commitments in the class of 2025, middle blocker/outside hitter Abbey Emch and outside hitter Samara Coleman.

Pitt opens the 2024 season on the road this year, traveling to Eugene, Ore. to take on a talented Ducks squad that knocked off the Panthers in five sets last September and advanced to the Elite 8 in each of the past two seasons.

Please explain to me how anyone can be a “Hawaiian-born Las Vegas native.”
