Vollyball Signs Junior College Transfer

Purdue brings valuable asset to team.

Mar. 5, 1998

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue volleyball coach Joey Vrazel has announced the signing of junior college transfer Aneska Arosarena (Panama City, Panama) to a National Letter-of-Intent to attend Purdue beginning in the fall of 1998.

Arosarena, a 6-foot middle blocker, played at Hill Junior College the last two seasons. She was named Most Valuable Player of the North Texas Junior Athletic Conference as a sophomore and was a two-time all-region selection. She is a former member of the Panamanian National Team.

"Aneska will definitely help us in the middle," Vrazel said. "She can be a force at the net both with her hitting and her blocking. She has been trained by Cuban coaches, is a great athlete and has a tremendous work ethic."

Arosarena, whose family now lives in Destin, Fla., joins three high school student-athletes who signed National Letters-of-Intent with the Boilermakers on Feb. 4: Christy Case (Naperville, Ill., Benet Academy); Maegan Petersen (Waupun, Wis., Waupun H.S.); and Amy Schweitzer (Brookfield, Wis., Catholic Memorial).
