April 12, 2001

BERKELEY, CA - The University of California women's volleyball program has signed Camille Leffall to a National Letter of Intent, it was announced today by Golden Bear head coach Rich Feller.

Leffall is a 6-0 middle blocker from Upland, CA. She attends Upland High School where this past fall she was first team all-league and first team All CIF Southern Section. As a junior in 1999, she was named the Los Angeles Times Player of the Year and was a member of the Youth National Training Team in 1998.

Leffall, who also plays volleyball for the Rancho Valley club team, selected Cal over Michigan, Hawaii, Wisconsin and Santa Clara.

'Camille will be a great addition to our program,' said Feller. 'She is the type of athlete who will make an immediate impact. She has the size, quickness and power to be a top player in the Pac-10. Camille is definitely one of the top recruits from the state of California. She and fellow recruit Mia Jerkov will be a big-time tandem for us.'

Leffall joins Mia Jerkov, a 6-3 outside hitter from Split, Croatia, who is a member of the Croatian National Team and signed with the Bears during the early signing period in November.
