Anderson led the USU offense with 377 kills and ranked among the top 10 in the Mountain West with 3.52 kills per set a year ago. The Aggies also return senior opposite Kayla DeCoursey and senior middle Carly Lenzen, as the duo finished third and fourth on the team last season, totaling 255 and 186 kills, respectively.
