Volleyball Adds Dynamic Middle Blocker to 2018 Class
On Thursday, Head Coach Zach Shaver announced that the Roughrider volleyball program received it’s 5th National Letter of Intent for the 2019 incoming freshmen class. Lacie Tenney (pictured at right with her parents) is a 6’1″ middle blocker from Mesa, who plays for Skyline High School and Molten Volleyball Club.
Lacie was a 3 year starter for the varsity squad at Skyline High School. After both her junior and senior seasons, she was named 1st Team All-Region. She was the 1st player in Skyline HS history to earn 1st Team All-Region honors. This year she led the team to the Arizona State Playoffs for the first time in Skyline history, beating Mesa High for the first time in school history. Tenney also helped Skyline win their bracket in the Nike Tournament of Champions. Last summer, she helped Molten VBC 18’s win third place at the Volleyball Festival.

When asked what excited her most about becoming a Roughrider, Lacie said, “…to journey with them to Nationals in the 2018 season.”
“Lacie is a dynamic player who should do very well in the ACCAC. Her attacking and blocking skills are solid and will help her transition to the collegiate game quickly. I am excited to add Lacie to the outstanding group of freshmen we have coming in for the fall of 2018!” said Coach Shaver. Tenney joins 4 other incoming freshmen who signed their NLI’s in 2017. Shaver also said, “We still have some vital recruiting to do but Coach Van Vleet and I are very pleased with the 5 who have committed to become Roughriders so far this year.” Lacie Tenney joins Skylar Redd (a 5’9″ outside hitter from Casa Grande, AZ), Annie Harte (a 5’11” outside hitter from Glendale, AZ), Lexi Cole (a 6′ middle blocker from Clovis, NM), and Audrey Brown (a 6’2″ right side hitter from Gilbert, AZ).
