Adriel is a great 6 rotation player on the floor. She passes well, but also can attack the ball. She sees the court well and is a hard worker. Lindsay has run a fast paced offense for her high school team and will fit right in with our current offense. She has a great knowledge of the game and leadership qualities that will be an asset to our team for the next four years. Cassidy has also had a lot of success throughout her high school career. Those successes will continue to help our volleyball program grow. She is a force at the net with her attacking and blocking abilities. All of them are going to be a great fit with our program and the MMC community."
