A&T volleyball program the first time he saw her play … Has quickness along the net and possesses the ability to play above the net … Should be a very exciting player for Aggie fans to watch over her career … Has a fast arm swing and can generate space behind the ball … Attack attempts should be hard to defend because of her ability to create angles with her leaping ability.
