TUCSON, Ariz.- The Arizona volleyball program grew by two on Wednesday when outside hitter Dominique Lamb and setter Amy Dyck sent in their signed National-Letters-of-Intent. The two highly recruited players will take the floor as freshmen Wildcats in 2004.
"I believe that this is an exceptional class," head coach David Rubio said. "Both Dominique and Amy will improve the athleticism of an already athletic team. That alone speaks for what they're going to bring to floor."
Lamb, a 6-foot-1 outside hitter from Chandler, Ariz., was named the 18th-best prospect in the country by prepvolleyball.com. Rubio and the coaching staff believe her athletic ability will fit in with the current outside hitters Kim Glass and Jennifer Abernathy.
"I think Dominique is going to be one of the best athletes to ever wear an Arizona uniform," Rubio said. "Volleyball-wise she still needs to develop her game, but she's an extremely hard worker and will be a major asset for us."
Dyck, a 5-foot-9 senior standout from Sandpoint, Idaho, was named the Gatorade Idaho Player of the Year after her junior season. Currently the starting setter for Sandpoint High School, Dyck led the Bulldogs to a state title in 2002 and to a third-place finish in 2001.
"Amy is every bit as athletic as (two-time All-American) Dana (Burkholder)," said Rubio. "She's not the same setter that Dana was, but she has time to develop and will grow into a great player for us."
