The season quickly approaches for the Agnes Scott Volleyball program as they announce three new additions to the team for the 2017 slate. Second-year head coach Bailey Thornton released the inclusion of Musumaulai Galoia (Augusta, Ga.), Melia Venezia (Clover, S.C.) and Tiara White (Sinton, Texas) to a team that lost only one senior from its 2016 roster.
Agnes Scott went 12-15 last season and have a plus-.500 record on their home court in Woodruff at 5-4. The Scotties return their top four offensive players from a season ago, as well a majority of their defense. The three new players bring more height to the squad, including adding two more threats to the front line.
Coach Thornton added, "I am excited to add three talented women to our roster. They will be a huge impact on our program, and I am excited to see what they will bring to the season."
The Scotties begin their quest of a USA South playoff push on September 1 with a weekend at the Millsaps Tournament in Jackson, Miss. The home opener is just four days later against Toccoa Falls College beginning at 7 p.m.
