Volleyball Adds Third Recruit For 2002
April 26, 2002
EUGENE -- EUGENE, Ore. - The University of Oregon has added a third recruit for the 2002 season, Oregon head coach Carl Ferreira announced today. Jaclyn Jones, a 6-1 outside hitter from Fort St. John, BC, has signed a letter of intent to join the Oregon program beginning this season.
Jones (North Peace Secondary) competed for British Columbia in the summer of 1999 and later helped British Columbia to a bronze medal at the Canada Games in the summer of 2001. She was selected as the Most Valuable Player following her senior season.
Another of Ferreira's recruits for the 2002 season - freshman setter Jodi Bell from Portland, Ore. - was recently named to Volleyball Magazine's Fab-50 list. Bell is likely to make an immediate impact at the setter position after the departure of Julie Gerlach and Sydney Chute.
It is the second consecutive season that Ferreira has signed a Fab-50 recruit from Oregon. The Ducks signed outside hitter Katie O'Neil from Gresham last season and O'Neil played in 97 of Oregon's 106 games, averaging 1.66 digs per game.
Bell, whose team was the state runner-up in 2000 and 2001, was the state 4A Player of the Year in 2000. Bell competed in the Mt. Hood Conference, which Ferreira says is the premier conference in the Portland area.
