The GW volleyball team announced 2001 Georgia Player of the Year Shannon Parks has signed a national letter of intent to play with GW next fall. Parks is a 6-foot middle hitter, once coached by former GW volleyball player and hall-of-famer Anna Bush.
Parks will add to GW’s strength up the middle and along with middle hitters freshman Britta Stroman and sophomore Lindsay Ochs, will make up what head coach Jojit Coronel described as one of the best middles in the Atlantic 10.
Parks is GW volleyball’s third recruit. She will join 6-foot-3 middle blocker Abigail Hatter from Manassas, Va., and Lindsey Vernand, a 6-foot outside hitter from Huntington Beach, Calif., next fall.-Lauren Silva
