CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.–The Virginia volleyball team’s incoming class of 2015 has been tabbed No. 30 in the nation by PrepVolleyball.com. The group of four student-athletes, which includes Coral Kazaroff (Apex, N.C.), Harley Sebastian (Atlanta, Ga.), Anna Walsh (Grapevine, Texas) and Kat Young (Chantilly, Va.) is the second nationally-ranked class fourth-year UVa head coach Dennis Hohenshelt has brought to Charlottesville.
“I am very excited for this incoming class,” Hohenshelt said. “The ranking reflects all of the hard work they have put in on the volleyball court over many years. We expect all four of these athletes to have a profound impact on our program and the University of Virginia as students, athletes and members of the unbelievable Charlottesville community. It is imperative for the growth of our volleyball program that we continue to receive commitments from players that will challenge our current roster and upgrade our talent pool as a whole. We are all looking forward to having Coral, Kat, Anna, and Harley join us on Grounds.”
Both Walsh and Sebastian were named in the top 100 on PrepVolleyball.com’s Senior Aces List. The foursome adds depth to the Cavalier squad in multiple areas with Walsh and Young in the middle, Sebastian on the outside and Kazaroff as a defensive specialist.
UVa lost four seniors from the 2014 squad that went 17-14 (10-8 ACC), including middle Morgan Blair, outside hitter Tori Janowski and defensive specialists Sydney Shelton and Abbey Welborn.
