Volleyball Signs Two Players To National Letters of Intent

Dec. 13, 2007

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Southeast Missouri State head volleyball coach Renata Nowacki has announced that Paige Dossey (Avon, Ind.) and Emily Maher (Flower Mound, Texas) have recently signed National Letters of Intent to compete for the Redhawks beginning with the 2008-09 school year. Dossey and Maher are Southeast's only signees during the NCAA's fall signing period.

"I feel these young ladies will make their presence felt in the gym and make everyone else on the team step their game up," stated Nowacki. "They are very competitive players and will challenge for starting roles during training camp in August. Both young ladies know what it takes to be successful on the court as well as in the classroom and hold themselves to high standards."

Dossey, a 5-10 outside hitter, is a four-year letterwinner and starter for Coach Scott McQueen at Avon High School in Avon, Ind. She averaged 2.52 kills and 1.57 digs per game as a senior captain en route to earning First Team All-West and all-conference accolades in addition to competing on the South team in the Indiana All-Star match. She helped the Orioles post a 34-3 mark this past fall that included winning sectional and county championships.

"Paige is a fun, dynamic kid to watch and I knew that she was the right fit for the program the moment she stepped on campus for her visit," Nowacki said. "She is immediately going to elevate team play once she arrives at Southeast."

A 6-0 middle blocker out of Marcus High School in Flower Mound, Texas, Maher led the team in kills (443), blocks (162) and service aces (70) in her senior season in which she served as a team captain for Coach Cristie Liles. She captured First Team All-Area honors by the Dallas Morning News in addition to being named the District 6-5A Blocker of the Year and will compete in the Texas Girls Coaches Association All-Star Game next July. Maher also earned Academic All-District honors this past fall.

"Emily is a smart middle blocker. She is a threat both offensively and defensively as she is very quick laterally and makes great reads. I look forward to having three strong middles in the gym next season," Nowacki added.
