Volleyball signee honored

FAYETTEVILLE — University of Arkansas volleyball signee Kristin Seaton was named one of PrepVolleyball.com’s 2004 High School All-Americans according to the publication’s web site. Seaton, a Fort Smith, Ark., native checks in from Northside High School where she was a four-time all-conference and two-time all-state selection. Seaton paced the Lady Bears to their first AAAAA Conference title in 2004 and earned a pair of all-state tournament titles during her career. One hundred and fifty athletes were selected from more than 400,000 nominations for the all-America team. Nominees must have made a "massive impact" on their team including being the best player on your team and one of the top three from your state. The six-foot two-position player inked with the Lady’Backs for the 2005 season and Arkansas head coach Chris Poole is excited about her addition. "Kristin has primarily played middle blocker for her high school program, but has focused more on the outside with the Ozark Juniors and also with the training she had with the USA Youth National Team," said Poole. "She is a great passer and reads very well on defense, so I see her having a chance to immediately step on the court as a full rotation player. She has a very high ‘volleyball IQ’." The Lady Razorbacks return to the court in August for the 2005 season. For more information about Arkansas volleyball log on to LADYBACKS.COM.
