Volleyball vs. Marist (10/3/13)
GENERAL:Comes from strong volleyball background...Great potential...Versatile enough to see action on either side up front, and athletic enough to contribute in back row as well...Can be a factor with improved strength and fitness.
2012: Saw limited action in three sets...Recorded six digs in one set in win over Saint Peter's (10/28).
BEFORE SIENA:Played four years of volleyball in high school...Was a Second Team All-League selection as a senior and team MVP all four years.
PERSONAL/COMMUNITY:Daughter of Antonio and Raquel Bonilla...Antonio played professional volleyball, and competed against Siena coach Garvey Pierre.
COACH PIERRE SAYS:"Nyah has a lot of potential. Last year, she was on and off due to injuries and illness. If she comes back strong from the summer, she should be able to establish herself on the court."
