Coach Yerty's Comments
Jennie is such a team player, that the team really rallies around her when she gets her opportunities. She improved a ton over the spring and will give us some depth this year on the outside. She brings so many intangibles to the team that she really fits our team and powers them on in every situation.
What to Watch for in 2004
Jennie spent last season making the adjustment to college volleyball and could see some time in a much-less experience outside hitting pool in 2004. The opportunities will exist for any outside hitters to step up early.
