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.
