COACH PIERRE SAYS:
    "Bobbi was one of our best defenders in 2014. She's very poised, with great reading skills and confidence. She is the type of player who can frustrate a hitter. I am blessed to have Bobbi on my team. We recruited her as a setter but her versatility took her to the libero position."
