Kasson-Mantorville’s Peyton Suess (13) goes up for a kill during the Class AA state volleyball tournament last fall. Suess announced her college decision Wednesday.

Peyton Suess has had a highly successful high school volleyball career.

And the standout hitter from Kasson-Mantorville still has two seasons to play for the KoMets.

Now, after making a big decision, Suess, who's about to start her junior year, can relax and enjoy her final two seasons of high school sports.

Suess announced on Wednesday that she has made her choice of where she'll play after high school. She will play in the Atlantic Coast Conference, for Division I Wake Forest.

The Demon Deacons, based in Winston-Salem, N.C., went 9-22 overall and 5-15 in the ACC last season.

Suess was an All-State selection last season, and she was a member of the All-Hiawatha Valley League team and the Post Bulletin All-Area second team as well.

Suess announced her decision on Twitter, writing "So excited to announce my commitment to play volleyball and continue my education at Wake Forest! Go Deacs!!"

Suess is also a standout basketball player for the KoMets. She'll attempt to help get K-M back to the Class AA state volleyball tournament this fall. The KoMets placed fourth in the state last year, falling to Hiawatha Valley League rival Kenyon-Wanamingo in the third-place match.

Suess, who's 6-foot, finished her sophomore season with 473 kills, 196 digs, 45 service aces and 69 blocks. "She led our team in three categories as a first-year outside hitter," K-M coach Adam Van Oort said following last season. "She played an instrumental part in helping us win Section 1AA and make the state tournament."
