RENO, Nev. - University of Nevada head volleyball coach Devin Scruggs has added two high school recruits to the Wolf Pack recruiting class for 2010 in Dana Holt and Brianna Heinen.  The duo joins local twins Sofia and Grace Anxo along with Tessa Lea'ea that inked national letters of intent to play for the Pack in November.

Holt is a 5'10" setter from Yorba Linda, Calif. where she played her prep volleyball at Esperanza High School.  A three-year varsity starter she was named to the All-Sunset League first-team, All-County third-team and was team co-MVP following her senior season.  The two-year varsity captain she was selected to the Sunset League second-team as a junior.  She was on the athlete and principal honor roll all four years at EHS and received the Coaches Award three times.  Competing for the Golden West Volleyball Club she helped the squad to a bronze medal at the 2009 Junior Olympics in Miami.

"Dana is an energetic competitive setter who will bring an exciting personality to the team" said Scruggs.  "She is a strong blocker who will provide depth at the setting position."

A 5'10" outside hitter/defensive specialist from Saratoga, Calif., Heinen attends Archbishop Mitty High School.  While a member of the City Beach Club team she was on squads that qualified the last seven years for Junior Olympics.  Currently she plays for Vision Volleyball Club and the team has qualified for Junior Olympics which will be played this summer in Reno.

"Bri brings very good all around skills to the team," added Scruggs.  "She has great ball control and will provide competition in both the defensive specialist and outside hitter positions."

"The 2010 recruiting class has turned into one of the top recruiting classes my staff and I have ever assembled here at Nevada," said Scruggs.  "We have players with phenomenal volleyball IQ combined with the physicality and experience we need to help move the program forward.  We are bringing in a 5'10" setter (Dana Holt), a 6'3" middle (Tessa Lea'ea), a 5'10" utility player (Grace Anxo), who can play every position on the court, as well as two more 5'10" ball control outside hitters (Sofia Anxo & Brianna Heinen)."
