Volleyball signs two

Arizona volleyball inked two for the 2010 season, head coach Dave Rubio announced on Monday.

Tarryn Luafalemana, a middle blocker from Carson, Calif., and Marketa Hanzlova, an outside hitter originally from Liberec, Czech Republic, have signed national letters of intent.

Hanzlova is a transfer from North Idaho College and in her two seasons led NIC with 37 aces, 357 kills, 254 digs and 52 blocks.

“”Marketa is a talented outside hitter who will bring added depth to our lineup,”” Rubio said in a press release. ””She is another player who should help us immediately.””

Hanzlova is a two-time NJCAA All-American and made appearances in the postseason.

Luafalemana led Carson High School to a record of 21-9 last season and will have the opportunity to step right into the lineup after the departure of Jacy Norton, who is graduating.

“”Tarryn is an extremely quick player and very athletic,”” Rubio said. “”She has a tremendous upside and has a chance to be a force for our team.””
