Tiger Volleyball Welcomes Three Signees

NASHVILLE --- Head coach Donika Sutton and the Tennessee State volleyball program have added three great players to the roster.

ISABELA SARTI

Right Side | 6'2"
Sao Paulo, Brazil | Iowa Western College

CENTRO EDUCACIONAL ETIP - HIGH SCHOOL

  •  3rd place at State in 2015
  • ADC Bradesco Club - Helped her team win the "Federação Paulista" Championship in 2013
  • Sesi Club - Helped her team win the "Copa cidade maravilhosa Rio de Janeiro FVR" in 2015

"Isabela comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experience. As a native of Brazil she will add international and NJCCA play to her resume.  She has made her mark in every program that she has been apart of. Coming in as a 6’2 Opposite. She will add a spark to the floor and I hope it sets everyone around her on fire. With excellent blocking abilities and a knack for being an offensive threat. I have a great feeling about how much of an impact she will be for us. Welcome to Tiger Volleyball Isabela!"

LAUREN HUGHES

Outside Hitter/Middle Blocker | 6'
Lancaster, Texas | Lancaster High School

"Lauren is a valuable asset on both ends of the ball. Coming in at 6’0 she instantly increases our size, depth in ball control and will continue to strengthen our block. Lauren is expected to be an impact player in her freshmen campaign. With the court knowledge and ability to play OH/MB or OPP, she is a team player. Lauren, Welcome to Tiger Volleyball!"

SERIDA SIMS

Defensive Specialist | 5'5"
Fort Worth, Texas | W.E. Boswell High School

HIGH SCHOOL

As an experienced Libero she has displayed consistency in her effort to strive for perfection. I expect her to see the floor this fall and am excited to watch her advance in this program. Welcome to Tiger Volleyball Serida!"
