|Monique St. Claire 1
GENERAL…A walk-on who adds depth at setter and as a defensive specialist…Gained valuable experience as a back-up setter last season and playing time figures to increase accordingly…Her defensive abilities are chief asset and for that reason, she could crack the back row rotation.
AS A FRESHMAN…Saw time in just two matches as she became accustomed to the college game.
PERSONAL…Two-sport star at Lake George High School lettering in softball and volleyball…Selected All-New York State as a senior…Named to the Glens Falls Post Star First Team and chosen MVP of Lake George squad…Father Randy played 10 seasons of major league baseball with Expos, Reds, Twins, Braves and Blue Jays and currently serves as a pitching coach for the Montreal Expos…Enjoys water skiing when not on the court or in the classroom…Born June 9, 1984 in Jacksonville, Fla…Daughter of Randy and Elizabeth St. Claire.
PIERRE ON ST. CLAIRE… “Monique has an extremely positive attitude and is very focused on becoming the best player she can be. Her defensive game is already solid and now we are working on polishing her passing skills so she can be used in key situations this fall.”
