Brescia added the following student-athletes: Savannah Aull (5-6, OH, Whitesville, Ky.), Hannah Beitler (6-0, OH/DS, Fort Wayne, Ind.), Melony Dunaway (6-1, RS/MB, Cynthiana, Ky.), Sadie Fulcher (5-7, OH/DS, Mayfield, Ky.), Shealyn Riggs (5-9, OH/DS, Fort Branch, Ind.), Adelle Ruth (5-4, DS, Louisville, Ky.), Lauren Wells (5-6, S, Orlando, Fla.), Theresa Wemhoff (5-7, OH/S, Cottonwood, Ind.).

"I should see some immediate impact on the varsity from Shealyn Riggs, Hannah Beitler and Savannah Aull as strong role players early on," added Schmidt. "The potential for several to grow into future impact student-athletes is exciting, including Melony Dunaway, Lauren Wells and Theresa Wemhoff. Every freshman brings something beneficial to this team, including Sadie Fulcher and Adelle Ruth, and in time we will see their positive impact."

The Brescia University volleyball team will start its season competing against Huntington University in the Forester Invite in Huntington, Indiana at 9 a.m on Friday.
