Kalen Owes, daughter of Ray & Laura Owes, both University of Arizona super star athletes, bucks the trend and verbally commits to play for the Trojans of USC in the PAC12. Owes, 16N1 Outside Hitter, is a volleyball phenom. She was heavily pursued by many of the top Division I schools.
Piper Manross, also heads to Southern California where she will attend Loyola Marymount University in the West Coast Conference. Piper successfully made the switch from Middle Blocker to Outside Hitter this year. Piper has incredible arm speed and power, coupled with her on court energy made her an ideal recruit for many Division I schools.
Mary Shroll, the latest of the 2019 commitments, decided to join her long time friend and teammate, Piper Manross at LMU. Mary has had an amazing amount of talent since 4th grade. She once dominated the pin leading her team to many victories. With her high volleyball IQ, court awareness and speed, she made the successful transition to Libero and is one of the best in the state of AZ.
As these three super athletes enter their junior year in the fall of 2018, we will keep you up to date on their progress as they continue to learn and grow over the next two years.
