It is always interesting to watch our local volleyball players as they move on to play collegiately.
The opportunity to play in college is a very special one and we are so fortunate to have many playing.
Former Newport Harbor High All-Sunset League middle blocker Katie Wells is again leading her team at Fordham in hitting percentage and is second in kills. As a returning All-Atlantic 10 and all-academic player, Katie has made quite a name for herself as she finishes her college career. At UC Irvine, former Corona del Mar star Juliane Piggott has recovered from early-season back problems to lead the Anteaters from her outside hitting position.
Former Estancia star Jaye Hellmich starts in the middle blocking position for Robert Morris (Pa.) where she has enjoyed a very successful career.
