University of Delaware Volleyball Program Adds Maryland Transfer Julia Anderson
NEWARK, Del. -- The University of Delaware volleyball program has added University of Maryland transfer Julia Anderson who will begin playing for the Blue Hens in the fall, UD head coach Bonnie Kenny announced Wednesday.
Anderson, a 5-8 setter, will have three years of eligibility remaining for Delaware after playing her freshman season with the Terrapins in 2013.
Anderson appeared in 92 sets for Maryland a year ago, contributing 487 assists for a team-best average of 5.29 assists per set. She also added 122 digs, sixth most on the squad, and posted nine service aces.
Anderson recorded 22 assists during her collegiate debut against George Washington, and a week later contributed a career-high 29 helpers vs. UMKC. Later in the season she had 27 assists in consecutive matches against Marshall and Georgia Tech, while she posted at least 20 assists in each of the final three contests of the campaign.
Anderson notched a career-high 13 digs vs. Clemson, and added nine against New Hampshire.
Anderson, a native of Mountainville, N.Y., led Cornwall Central High School to the state championship during all four years. A two-time OCIAA first team selection and team captain, she was named second team All-State in 2011 and earned a spot on the state All-Tournament Team. Anderson also played club volleyball for USANY in 2013, helping lead the squad to a 15th place finish at AAU Nationals.
“I am really excited about adding Julia to our roster,” Kenny said. “She had a very good freshman year at Maryland, and will bring some maturity and stability to our setting position. She has good volleyball roots, having played for the USANY club program. She loves to play, and enjoys training and learning. We have high hopes for Julia and her future here.”
