Three high school seniors, all of whom earned league Player of the Year honors, have signed national letters of intent to play volleyball at Western Washington University beginning in the fall of 2013.
The trio includes opposite-side hitter Joellee Buckner from Colville, outside hitter Haleigh Harrison from Sequim and setter Kristina Tribley from Wenatchee.
"We are really excited for our 2013 class," WWU coach Diane Flick said in a news release. "It's not just about their physical abilities to play the game, but the passion and excitement they play it with. They are athletic, dynamic, great teammates as well as great students, which is exactly what we look for in Viking student-athletes."
Buckner helped Colville High School to a 101-5 record during her three-year career. The Indians were unbeaten in league play each of those seasons.
Harrison was the Olympic League Most Valuable Player as a senior at Sequim High School. She led the Wolves to a 20-3 record, league and West Central District III titles, and a trip to the Class 2A state tourney.
Tribley was the Big 9 Player of the Year as a senior at Wenatchee High School, helping the Panthers to a 19-5 record, league and district titles, and the Class 4A state tournament.
