The volleyball teams signs another international player coming all the way from the Netherlands, Tessa Raadsheer. Tessa is an outside attacker who was playing in the 2nd division in Holland. She has played volleyball for many years representing the team PDK Huizen. She is very athletic and jumps well and will add to the depth to the attackers for IRSC. Tessa has a fast arm and will be a great addition to the Indian River squad.
The Pioneers have also picked up a freshman defensive specialist, Valentina Beltran. Coming from the Orlando area, Beltran played for Cypress Creek High School. She was a libero and defensive specialist for the Bears. In her junior year of high school, her team lost in the FHSAA Regional semi-final match. In her senior season, Valentina was awarded a medal for most digs in a season.
The Pioneers are very excited for the 2018 season and have finalized the recruiting class. Indian River will be returning many sophomores and will be adding an athletic group of freshmen.
