Women's Volleyball 2001 Recruits Ranked No. 1

Feb. 28, 2001

LOS ANGELES -- For the second year in a row, the USC women's volleyball program has landed the nation's top recruiting class, according to Volleyball and Student Sports Magazine.

The Women of Troy's 2001 recruiting class -- which includes Emily Adams of Xavier College Prep in Phoenix, Ariz., Alicia Robinson of Central High in Phoenix, Ariz., and Keao Burdine of La Habra (Calif.) High -- will only add to the depth and talent that players such as April Ross (2000 AVCA second team All-American, Volleyball Freshman of the Year), Katie Olsovsky (Volleyball All-Freshman team) and Toni Anderson (Volleyball All-Freshman team) provided USC last season. Last year's freshmen helped guide the Women of Troy back to national prominence with its first NCAA Final Four appearance in 15 years.

'Three more big-time players added to the depth of the Trojans' landmark class of 2000 makes Mick Haley the envy of most Division I head coaches,' states Jon Hastings of Volleyball.
