South Dakota State head volleyball coach Phil McDaniel announced Monday the addition of Northeast Community College transfer Nazya Theis to the Jackrabbit roster. Theis, who led the Hawks in kills last season, will have three seasons of eligibility left at SDSU.

 

“Nazya has a chance to make an impact on our squad right away.  She had a tremendous freshman season, and will fit in with our group nicely,” McDaniel said. “The experience that she had last year at Northeast will give her an opportunity to come in and compete for playing time.”

 

A 5-foot-9 outside hitter from Windside, Neb., Theis earned first team all-region,

first team Iowa Community College Athletic Conference, second team all-conference and was named to the Region XI 11B Team All-Tournament team during the 2013 season.

 

As a starter at Northeast, Theis recorded 525 kills and averaged 4.41 kills per set, ranking second in the conference in kills and kills per set. She also registered 30 service aces, 457 digs and 15 solo blocks and helped the Hawks to a 15-21 record in the program’s first season of volleyball since the sport was reinstated after a 10-year absence.

 

Theis joins a South Dakota State squad that returns five starters and 11 letterwinners and welcomes seven newcomers.
