HNT All-Area Girls Volleyball



Arguably the best player in Middlesex County, the senior will continue her career in college at Virginia Commonwealth University, where she has a scholarship. At 6-foot with tremendous leaping ability, she registered 227 kills, 69 blocks and 18 aces as an outside hitter. "No one could handle her," Colonia coach Tom Hennessey said. "She is really raw, in a volleyball sense, which obviously the VCU coach saw. She's a straight athlete. She's fast, she's quick and she's agile. She has a tremendous amount of talent." Ibeh, who did not play the game at all until freshman year, also plays club ball.



The lanky, 6-foot-1 junior middle hitter posted 195 kills and 57 blocks. She was another key to her school's 27-2 team that, in just its fourth year as a program, went on and captured the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament in its first try. "She's very unorthodoxed," her coach Tom Hennessey said. "Nobody could jump with her, so she puts the ball straight down. She puts the ball inside the attack line. She's very athletic and a big middle, and goes around blocking people." She, along with teammates Uzomaka Ibeh and Melissa Rustemeyer, combined for 544 kills.
