EUGENE, Ore – The praise continues to roll in for Oregon’s 2014 freshmen volleyball class, which was ranked the ninth-best recruiting class in the country by Volleyball Magazine, Thursday.
The five-member class has been highly touted and was recently ranked the No. 8 recruiting class by PrepVolleyball.com.
The class has three players who were included in PrepVolleyball.com’s top 60 highlighted by No. 17 Taylor Agost from Clackamas High School who follows the lineage of Portland Prep standouts to make their way down I-5 on to the Ducks’ roster, as she will join teammates Liz Brenner (Jesuit HS) and Martenne Bettendorf (Central Catholic HS).
Frankie Shebby (6’0’’) will join Agost as an outside hitter and is ranked No. 44 on the Senior Aces list. The hard hitter from Mater Dei High School was an All-Orange County First Team in both 2012 and 2013.
Setter Maggie Scott will be competing with Shellsy Ashen to replace outgoing senior Lauren Plum. Scott was No. 60 on the Senior Aces list, hailing from Wildwood, Mo., and was a part of the Lafayette High School team that went 40-0 in 2012 without losing a set.
The Ducks will also see Alex Hojnar (5-9, DS) and Marine Hall-Poirier (5-11, OH) on the floor at MKA next season.
