Bio Bits

Beach Bits:
• In August 2021 in Atlanta, Kloth became the first woman outside of the early days of beach volleyball to win a tournament in her pro beach volleyball debut, winning alongside Kristen Nuss.
• In April 2022 in Coolangatta, Australia, Kloth won a gold medal in her first ever international beach volleyball event, playing with Kristen Nuss.

2021: Kloth played in all three AVP tournaments with Kristen Nuss and made history immediately, winning in her pro beach volleyball debut in Atlanta after advancing from the qualifier. The pair then placed fifth and third in the last two events. For the season they were 16-4 in matches, with all four losses coming to teams seeded first or second. Kloth was second on the Tour in hitting percentage (.527), third in blocks (1.20 per set) and fourth in kills (7.40 per set).

College: Kloth was an outside hitter for four years at Creighton, and she tallied 1,427 career kills, the fourth most in Bluejay history. Kloth was a two-time AVCA Honorable Mention All-American and Creighton advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight her sophomore season. Kloth played three seasons of beach volleyball at LSU, which at one point held the nation's number one ranking. In her first season on the beach she went 18-9. The next year Kloth was 13-0 with Kelli Agnew on court 4, and the duo was the only pair in the country to win every set throughout the season with a minimum of 10 matches played together. That year Kloth was 14-0 in matches, then her final season went 36-0 on court 1 when playing with Kristen Nuss. She became just the 15th player to be an All-American both indoors and on the beach.

Personal:  Kloth has seven younger siblings. She was twice selected as the South Dakota state tournament MVP, and was the South Dakota's Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior. PrepVolleyball.com had Kloth ranked 18th on its Senior Aces list, believed to be the highest ranked player ever from South Dakota. She set the team records for most kills in a match, season and career, as well as attack percentage for a season.
