USU's other returning starting senior is outside hitter Josselyn White who hit .167 a year ago and averaged 2.73 kills, 2.29 digs and 1.01 blocks per set. Both Sorensen and White were named to the WAC's all-preseason team in 2012. Other starters returning include sophomore setter Paige Neves, who was named to the WAC's all-freshman team a year ago, along with sophomore libero Ashlan Rogers and sophomore middle blocker Kaitlyn VanHoff. Other returnees include senior setter Kassi Hargrove, junior outside hitter Tumua Etimani, sophomore outside hitter Rachel Orr, and sophomore opposite side hitter Jamaica Alisa. USU will also have the services of a pair of redshirts from a year ago in opposite side hitter Elle Brainard and middle blocker Shan England. One player who will miss the 2012 season is senior middle blocker Alyssa Everett who is recovering from offseason injury.
