GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Taylor Kasal has signed a national letter of intent (NLI) to play volleyball at Green Bay, head coach Debbie Kirch announced on Thursday. Kasal, a native of Westmont, Ill., becomes the fifth member of the Phoenix Class of 2012 recruiting class.

"I am very excited to be a part of the Phoenix family," Kasal said. "As a competitor, I am willing to do what it takes to help my team achieve and exceed our goals. I thank Coach Kirch for giving me this opportunity to play volleyball at Green Bay."

Kasal is a 6-foot setter that attends Downers Grove North High School and 1st Alliance Volleyball Club. As a junior and a senior, Kasal was named to the West Suburban Silver Division All-Conference. Kasal was also named to the DuPage County Herald All-Area Team in both seasons and was an honorable mention all-state selection by the Chicago Tribune

"Taylor is the kind of utility player we needed to round out that incoming class," Kirch said. "She adds depth in just about every position for us with one player and she can transition from one position to another very smoothly. What really impressed me about Taylor when I watched her play was her confidence and her will to win."

Kasal will join Mikaela Gunderson (Casco, Wis.), Sophie Jaskulske (Maplewood, Minn.), Becca Mastay (Pulaski, Wis.) and Stefanie Siroin (Herbster, Wis.) to make up the class of 2012. To read more about the rest of the class of 2012, click here.

"I am really excited about what this class will bring to our program," Kirch added. "It is a very athletic group that we are adding covers just about every position on the floor. They can make an impact in many areas for us."
