Rachael Withers Signs With Oregon State
Nov. 14, 2002
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Rachael Withers has signed a national letter of intent to play volleyball at Oregon State, coach Nancy Somera announced Thursday. Withers joins five others who announced their plans to join the Beavers in 2003 on Wednesday.
Withers, a 6-0 middle blocker from Vancouver, Wash., helped lead Central Catholic High School to a fourth-place finish in the Oregon 4A state championship last week. She was named to the 4A all-tournament team for her efforts. She was also a first team All-Mt. Hood Conference selection this season.
'Rachael has the wingspan of someone who is 6-3, so she puts up a formidable block,' said Somera. 'She's a quick jumper who can get vertical easily. That's nice to have in the middle when you don't always get a big, long approach.'
