Volleyball Opens Season Ranked #8 in NJCAA

Eastern Arizona volleyball opens up the 2012 campaign ranked 8th in the NJCAA preseason poll. Following two seasons of National Tournament qualifying and finishing 8th both times, the Lady Monsters have big shoes to fill. That task will begin by competing in a top-notch field at the Iowa Western Tournament on August 23-25. Four out of five of the opponents are ranked in the top ten of their respective national polls. The ladies will open up at home on August 29th and 31st against Glendale and Central Arizona.

Returning from last year’s squad is the reigning ACCAC Player of the Year, Tupu Satele. Satele was 1st Team All ACCAC, Region I, and 2nd Team All-American in 2011. Also returning from 2011 are Rebeka Barney (Thatcher), Heather Lucero (Thatcher), Annalyn Sanders (Queen Creek), and Ashley Pedro (Safford).
