QUOTING NELSON
?Janelle is a fifth year senior and has had some good experience. She has played a role the last two seasons in the middle and has developed. I think she is really coming along well. She is our biggest jumper at 10-7 with her approach touch she has the ability to be a dominating blocker. Her biggest problem has been lack of playing time. She played a lot last fall and this spring so hopefully she will come back a little more experienced and ready to have a great season. If she swings high and she moves quickly she too has the ability to put up big numbers. She is up so high that the block really isn't a factor unless she hits the ball straight down and that is a task for her. She needs to improve her transition and ability to read the other team's setter. She is a phenomenal athlete and will accept some leadership.?
