March 2, 2017
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Virginia volleyball head coach Aaron Smith announced that Hannah Barcus (Virginia Beach, Va.) will join the 2017 incoming class for the Cavaliers.
“I am very excited for Hannah to be a part of this already strong 2017 class,” Smith said. “Hannah was in Memorial Gym three summers ago for camp and a 6’3 high school freshman is impossible not to notice. As a beginner to volleyball at the time, I could see she had some work to do. The dedication she has shown toward her development is the type of commitment I want in this program. Hannah’s skills as an attacker and blocker will help us on the court right away.”
Barcus, a 6-3 middle blocker, played high school volleyball for Norfolk Academy. Barcus is a two-time Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools First Team and Virginia Independent Schools Division I First Team selection. She finished with 202 kills and 84 blocks to earn team MVP honors as a junior. In her senior season, she served as team captain and finished with 281 kills on a .474 hitting percentage while adding 116 blocks.
