Head coach Joe Getzin's 2013 class was ranked Highest Honorable Mention by PrepVolleyball.com.

June 6, 2013

OXFORD, Miss. – Bringing in one of its largest and most talented classes in the Joe Getzin era, Ole Miss volleyball has been recognized for its hard work on the recruiting trail by being ranked Highest Honorable Mention by PrepVolleyball.com.

The Rebels will be bringing in seven newcomers for the 2013 campaign, including Marie-Pierre Bakima, Laura Beaty, Kristen Brashear, Melanie Crow, Aubrey Edie, Margaret Eggert and Cara Fisher.

“Having our 2013 recruiting class ranked as a Highest Honorable Mention by PrepVolleyball.com is exciting,” Getzin said. “This shows what great athletes and volleyball players we have coming in this season. I’m really proud of the hard work our associate head coach and recruiting coordinator Shannon Wells and assistant coach Sean Burdette have put in to this recruiting class. We’re all looking forward to getting in the gym with them and starting practice.”

Bakima and Fisher will come to Ole Miss as juniors, and will have two years of eligibility remaining. PrepVolleyball.com’s recruiting class rankings consist only of players making their initial appearance in a four-year program. The class rankings do not take into account transfers, including those from junior colleges, or foreign players.

Bakima, who will play outside for the Rebels, played at San Jacinto College for each of the last two years, and was named the NJCAA Player of the Year last season for region XIV.

Beaty, a 5-foot-11 setter, comes from Coppell, Texas, where she helped guide Coppell High School to a 5A state championship last season.

Playing at Sacred Heart Academy in Louisville, Ky., Brashear, a libero, earned All-District and All-State Honorable Mention honors as a senior, and was also nominated to the Under Armour All-American watch list.

Crow, a 6-foot-1 right side hitter, comes to Ole Miss after a stellar high school career where she led the Lafayette (Wildwood, Mo.) Lancers to back-to-back Missouri state championships in 2011 and 2012, including a 40-0 record in 2012 where the Lancers didn’t lose a single set.

A 6-foot setter from Fayetteville, Ark., Edie was named an Under Armour Second Team All-American by the American Volleyball Coaches Association, and was selected to the USA Junior National A2 team.

Eggert was a three-year starter at East Ridge High School and a two-year captain. Hailing from Woodbury, Minn., the 6-foot-1 outside hitter was named a top-20 recruit in the state of Minnesota by Breakdown Sports, and was named All-Conference two years in a row.

Fisher, a 5-foot-3 libero/defensive specialist from Manvel, Texas, started every match as a freshman at the University of New Mexico. Fisher was named second team all-conference while playing at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, last season.
