DURHAM, N.H. – Jill Hirschinger, head coach of the University of New Hampshire women's volleyball program, recently announced that two student-athletes have committed to attend UNH and will play for the Wildcat volleyball program next fall.
Demi Muses, a 5-11 middle blocker from Orangevale, Calif., plays for head coach Tamara Lapoint at Casa Roble High School. A three-time Capital Valley All-League selection, Muses paced the conference in hitting, kills and digs this past season. Muses led the league in overall scoring as a junior during the 2011-2 campaign and was named the team's Offensive Player of the Year as a sophomore.
"Demi brings both fire and athleticism to the court and will be a great addition to our program," said Hirschinger. "Her competitiveness and love for the game is contagious. We're thrilled to have her as part of our Wildcat family."
Keelin Severtson, a 5-7 setter from Delray Beach, Fla., plays for head coach Sandi Barnes at Cardinal Newman High School. As a two-time team captain, Severtson led the Crusaders to the district title this past season for the first time in five years. She was named to the Palm Beach Post All-Palm Beach County Second Team as sophomore and was an honorable mention during her freshman and junior campaigns. She also earned Sun Sentinel honorable mention honors as a freshman.
"I am very excited to add Keelin to the Wildcat family," said Hirschinger. "She has an incredible work ethic and desire to improve. Keelin's volleyball intelligence and court awareness will contribute to our successes right away."
