Amanda Neill, Bridget Powell and Kate Workman will be joining Faye Adelaja, Annie Drews and Sam Epenesa as the Class of 2012 for Coach Shondell and the Purdue Volleyball team. Shondell likes the ball control skills that the trio will bring to West Lafayette in the Fall and believes they will make a great addition to the team.
This is great news as Purdue lost Bashen and Ehlers to graduation, both of whom passed the 1000 digs career mark their senior seasons. I am not familiar with these players, but based off what Shondell has said, I could see one of these players in the main rotation by the end of the 2012 season. If one or 2 of them redshirt, that is fine by me, let them develop so they can be ready to play when our current upperclassmen graduate.
