EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. – SIUE volleyball Head Coach Leah Johnson has added a pair of transfers to the roster for next season. Hilary Trevino (Hermann, Mo.) and Haley Norris (St. Charles, Ill.) will join the Cougars.

She recorded 371 digs, 23 service aces, and 61 blocks. She helped her team to a 10th place finish at the national tournament and an overall record of 35-7.
"Hillary is a natural athlete. She has the ability to play six rotations thanks to her strong first contact ability as well as her terminal arm swing," said Johnson. "She has enjoyed a very successful career, and we are excited for her to continue her career in a Cougar uniform."
Trevino was a two-time All-State selection at Hermann High School. She led her team to the Class 2 state tournament title during the 2008-2009 season.
Norris, 5-4 defensive specialist, is transferring to SIUE from Northern Illinois. Norris played in eight sets last season for the Huskies during her freshman season.

"Haley is a kind and thoughtful person, a student-athlete of character. Her character is complimented by her skill sets; she has tremendous defensive instincts and a natural passing touch. She will be a great competitive addition to our program," Johnson said.
A member of the Kane Country Juniors, Norris helped her club team to first place at the 2011 Volleyball Festival as well as second place in 2009.
