POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Marist Volleyball Head Coach Tom Hanna has announced the signing of another student-athlete for the class of 2018. Ashton Korona, a native of San Antonio, Texas, has committed to join the Red Foxes for the 2014 season.
Ashton Korona - 6’2” - Middle Blocker/Right Side Hitter - Ronald Reagan HS/Alamo Volleyball Club - Hometown: San Antonio, TX
Korona comes to Marist with Second Team All-District Honors in her senior season. From 2011-13, her team claimed the District Championships, while becoming Texas 5A State Quarter-finalists in the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
“Ashton will be a great asset to our program as both a middle blocker and a right side hitter,” said Hanna. “She’s a solid hitter off one leg which really works well in our offensive system, as we have our right sides hit inside out. Her experience playing for three-time District champs Reagan HS along with six appearances at USA Nationals and in the top division of the Tour of Texas with Alamo will be beneficial for our program. I’m excited to add a fifth player from Texas to our roster for the 2014 season.”
