Hoover on Brenner: "Hannah is a very energetic athlete with a great work ethic. I have been so impressed with our current freshman class and their work ethic, and Hannah will just continue to add to that team strength. Hannah has a distinct advantage with being a left handed setter and being able to be aggressive and attack the second contact. We haven't had a lefty in the program in a while and are excited about what that dynamic will bring to the team."
