Booren -- March 26, 2014 PASADENA, Texas – San Jacinto College Volleyball Head Coach Sharon Nelson has been selected as the two-year coach representative to serve on a recruiting panel discussion during the upcoming American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) / National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) College Prep Combine. The purpose of the panel is to educate parents of volleyball student-athletes about the recruiting process, and to provide details unique to each National College Athletic Association (NCAA) or National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) division. The Combine assesses players' physical potential, behavioral temperament, and current skill level. It will be held Thursday, April 3 at NRG Park. “I am honored and flattered to be asked to represent two-year colleges on this panel,” said Nelson, who also serves as the San Jacinto College Central Campus athletic director. “These days, recruiting can begin as early as junior high, so providing accurate information to parents is extremely important.” San Jacinto College finished the 2013 regular season ranked 13th in the country with a 22-10 overall record. Five San Jac volleyball players earned all-conference honors, led by freshman middle blocker Anna Helena Ribeiro, who was the unanimous Region XIV newcomer of the year, and a NJCAA and AVCA All-American.
