Women's Volleyball, 2012-12-12

Walsh University Head Coach Erin Foster has announced that Brooke Logan and Kelly Miller have signed institutional letters of intent to further their academic and athletic careers to play volleyball for the Cavaliers in the fall of 2013.

“Brooke is an amazing young woman with outstanding athletic talent,” exclaimed Foster. “She is an experienced hitter in all three front row positions, and puts up a tremendous block. She is someone who is poised to come into our program and start making an impact right away. Playing for such great high school and club teams has given her high level game experience that will speak volumes for her at this level.”

“Kelly, although battling an injury throughout her senior season, is someone who is going to be a great asset to our program,” noted Foster. “She’s got great offensive talent in the middle and is a outstanding blocker. She brings a lot of height to our offense and although she has some big shoes to fill, is someone I believe is up for the challenge. She’s not only a great athlete, but an incredible student as well.”

“We are so lucky to have two outstanding young women joining our ranks here at Walsh. We are looking to make a much greater impact in the GLIAC next season, and I believe Brooke and Kelly are just the players to help us do so.”
