The 2019 Wrangler Volleyball team reported to campus last week with high expectations entering the season.
The Wranglers return only three players from last season, setter Summer Ah Choy, libero Faith Sanchez, and right side Alexis Parrish, but they all saw significant time in the OC rotation gaining valuable playing experience.
The Wranglers have added nine new faces to go along with the five returning sophomores. In addition, Coach Gray has brought in former player Alison Fuata as her Assistant Coach.
