VOLLEYBALL SIGNS CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL LIBERO SYDNEY KORDIC
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State head volleyball coach Ruben Volta announced today that prep libero Sydney Kordic has signed a National Letter of Intent and will enroll at the University as a freshman in the fall of 2009.
Kordic, who stands 5-foot-8 and hails from San Ramon, Calif., was a four-year member of the varsity team at California High School. A three-time all-East Bay Athletic League selection and two-time team MVP, Kordic played both outside hitter and libero throughout her high school career. In fact, she was second on the Grizzlies last season with an average of 4.2 kills per set. As a Hornet, she will play both the libero and defensive specialist positions.
Kordic also played six years for the Norcal Volleyball Club based out of Pleasanton, Calif. The team has qualified for the Junior Volleyball Olympics each of the last four years. That included last season’s squad where Kordic served as the team captain.
“I really like Sydney’s fundamentals on defense, and she does a very nice job with serve receive,” Volta said. “She has a lot of club experience and joins this program with all the tools necessary to be a successful player at this level.”
Besides Kordic, the Hornets’ 2009 recruiting class also consists of Rocklin High School outside hitter/libero Janelle Currey and Capital (Boise, Idaho) High School setter Hannah Hettinga, who were both inked during the early signing period.
Kordic joins a Sacramento State volleyball program that has won 11 of the last 12 Big Sky Conference championships, and has 10 NCAA Tournament appearances since 1997.
