NOVA women’s volleyball coach Marcus Robinson announced that a pair of former Stonewall Jackson High School standouts signed National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Letters of Intent.
Emily Anderson and Megan Schrecongost, both from Manassas, Va., are the fifth and sixth student-athletes to sign with NOVA’s new NJCAA volleyball program.
“It will help to have two former teammates on our roster in 2012,” said Robinson, who just completed his third year directing the NOVA volleyball program. “They can really help our team’s chemistry and they are certainly very talented volleyball players.”
Schrecongost is a 5-foot-8-inch outside or right side hitter with both high school and four years of club experience. She was promoted from junior varsity to varsity as a sophomore. During her senior year with SJHS, she was first in service points (48 aces) and third in digs (111). She plans to major in elementary education.
Anderson is a 5-foot-9-inch middle or right side hitter and played four years at Stonewall Jackson. She was the junior varsity captain in 2009 and she earned the coaches award during her senior campaign.
Northern Virginia Community College has competed as an independent club level for the past three seasons. In the 2012-13 season NOVA will become full members of the NJCAA and eligible to compete for regional and national championships and other academic and athletic awards.
