OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss volleyball team added two more players with the signing of Nikki Hill and Ashleigh Shear to letters of intent for the 2004-05 academic year.

"Both of these young ladies bring experience with them and can provide an immediate impact," said Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin. "Nikki Hill has great credentials as a two-time All-American and is a great athlete. Ashleigh adds immediate depth to our setter position. She's an athlete and has Division I setting experience. We look forward to the depth they will provide for us in the fall."

Hill, an outside hitter, comes to Ole Miss from Northwest Shoals Community College where she played for two years for Tina Seals. In her two seasons at Northwest Shoals, Hill helped lead her team to back-to-back national championship tournament appearances. She earned 2003 Region 22 Player of the Year honors, AJCCC Tournament MVP honors in 2002 and 2003, and was named an All-Region selection in both 2002 and 2003. Hill also was named a NJCAA First Team All-America selection in 2002 and 2003.

During her two seasons with Northwest Shoals, Hill set several records, including kills in a season (648), kills in a career (1,289) and attach attempts in a season and a career.

Hill also helped set the standard in her high school career at John L. LeFlore High School. The Mobile, Ala., native earned MVP honors and was named Most Outstanding Offensive Player in high school. She was also selected as a participant in the Alabama North-South All-Star match, selected as a Southwest Region Female Athlete of the Year, First Team All-State, All-Region, All-Area, and was a Super 12 selection.

Shear comes to Ole Miss after spending two seasons at the U.S. Naval Academy where she played for Mike Schwob. While at the Naval Academy, Shear also was a member of the track team where she currently holds the indoor and outdoor record in shot put.

Shear, a setter, was an outstanding high school player at Chapin High School in Chapin, S.C. She lettered six years under Mary Jo Jenny and helped lead her team to the Class-2A State Championships in 1999. She was also an All-State selection in 2000.

Both Hill and Shear fill out the roster for spring competition and will allow the Lady Rebels to compete with a full slate for the spring.
