Georgia State’s sand volleyball (not beach volleyball, sand volleyball) signed three players this week to join the team, which will begin play in the spring of 2013.
One of them, Karlee Kavanaugh, is from Alaska. Chugiak to be exact. If memory (and Wikipedia) serves, it’s a suburb of Anchorage.
The other signees are former Miami All-American Lane Carico and Molly Smestad, a transfer from Arkansas at Monticello.
Kavanaugh was selected to play in the USAV HP Beach Championships last year, and she finished second in the Alaska State Beach Volleyball Open Championships. She was also a first-team all-state selection.
“Karlee is a solid player who gets better every time she steps on the sand,” coach Tami Audia said in a statement. “She is a dedicated player who travels far distances for training. With good size and a keen sense of the game, Karlee will be a fun contributor to watch all four years of her career.”
