Herd volleyball picks up transfer

Jun. 18, 2013 @ 11:20 PM

HUNTINGTON -- Ashley Arnold has joined the Marshall Thundering Herd volleyball program as a transfer from Winthrop University and has immediate eligibility.

Arnold is a 6-foot sophomore middle hitter from Myrtle Beach.

"You always have question marks when looking at transfers, but the more I got to know Ashley the more impressed I became with who she is as a person," Marshall head coach Mitch Jacobs said. "As a player, Ashley has all the tools to be a fantastic middle blocker. She has great instincts on the block and I look forward to seeing her growth here in our program.

"With the permanent loss of Jaylene Berrien to injury, I believe that Ashley is the perfect addition to our returning players and incoming class."

Arnold played in three matches as a freshman for the Winthrop Eagles. She made the Dean's List.

Her career at Socastee High School in Myrtle Beach included all-region and all-conference honors as a junior and senior. She set the school record for kills as a senior.

She played for the Grand Strand Juniors club team that won the Battle at the Beach tournament in 2011.
