Sherles was the All-District 3-AAA Most Valuable Player
“What I like about Alex is the heavy ball that she hits. She can unleash a swing on the ball that positions her as a terminal front court player. To add to that power, she is crafty and uses her Volleyball IQ to place balls to earn points for her team. She is a leader on the court who embraces the high pressure moments and rises to the occasion.”

“Kalee is a dynamic, highly skilled outside hitter who has the potential to be an immediate standout in our conference. She has that competitive switch and edge to her that is a perfect fit for our program. Her presence is contagious on the court and her ETSU teammates will thrive off of that. Not only does she have a great skill set but she plays the game fearless which is what I love about her.”

I could name many positive attributes about Lexie bus as a freshman coming into our gym, her fiery attitude and vocal energy will immediately gain the respect from teammates.”
