Burdette Finalizes 2014 Roster with Addition of Megan Powers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Green Bay volleyball head coach Sean Burdette has completed his 2014 roster with the addition of San Jose State transfer Megan Powers (Glendale, Ariz./Ironwood HS). A 6-foot-0 middle hitter, Powers joins the Phoenix as a sophomore and will have three years of eligibility remaining.
“We are very excited to welcome Megan to the Phoenix volleyball program this fall,” Burdette said. “Megan brings collegiate experience, as well as gives us depth and versatility in the middle hitter position. Megan’s quickness and ability to attack in front and behind the setter will fit well into our offensive style of play.”
Powers played in 18 matches as a freshman for San Jose State in 2013, totaling 28 blocks, 28 kills and 13 digs. In high school, she was a three-year starter at Ironwood where she was a two-time Division II all-state first team selection. Powers led her team in kills, blocks and aces during her final two seasons, and helped her squad to the state quarterfinals as a junior. She also played club ball for Revolution Volleyball Academy in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Powers becomes the seventh member of Green Bay’s incoming class, as Halle Barnabo (River Falls, Wis.), Lydia DeWeese (Columbus, Ohio), Abby Jeffcoat (Racine, Wis.), Beth Kuske (Germantown, Wis.), Kayla Pfeiffer (Lockport, Ill.) and Taylor Totka (Racine, Wis.) have also signed to play for the Phoenix. The group joins a talented Phoenix squad that is coming off a 9-5 mark in Horizon League play in 2013 and returns a trio of postseason award-winners.
