DENTON, Texas (11/20/07) North Texas head volleyball coach Cassie Headrick added some much needed size to the Mean Green roster with the signing of three talented players to National Letters of Intent.
“Overall this is a class that will expand our athleticism in terms of passing blocking and hitting,” Headrick said. “It’s a well rounded class that will really allow our offense to open up. They have played at the highest level of club and high school ball, and we will look to that experience right from the start.”
Lindsay Stahl was a four-time All-District 3-5A honoree, finishing her career at Midland High School as the district’s Most Outstanding Hitter as a senior. Stahl led the Bulldogs in kills and blocks and was a first-team all-district and All-Permian Basin selection in each of the last three seasons.
The 6-foot 2-inch outside hitter played for North Texas assistant coach Miranda Orr on the West Texas Juniors club team, where the team captain was either named the squad’s MVP or Best Offensive Player in each of the last three club seasons.
Lacy Reasons, daughter of former New York Giants linebacker Gary Reasons, comes to North Texas with an impressive resume of her own. The four-year letterman at Santa Fe High School was named to the Oklahoma All-State Tournament team in 2007 after guiding her team to the state title game.
The 6-foot outside hitter was named to the Stillwater Invitational All-Tournament team in each of the last three seasons and was the Union Tournament MVP as a senior. The multi-sport star also played basketball, and was a member of the National Honors Society in each of the last two seasons.
Katie Dillard is a two-time All-District 2-5A selection from Lubbock Coronado High School. Standing 6-foot 1-inch, the three-year letterman and two-time co-captain of the Mustangs twice led her squad to the Region 1-5A Quarterfinals.
Behind Dillard, the Mustangs improved their record by 15 matches from the previous year. She racked up 386 kills (3.39 kills per game) with a .251 attack percentage as a senior, to go with 99 blocks and 85 digs. Also an asset from the serving line, Dillard tallied 38 aces last season.
