Pacific Women's Volleyball: Tigers Add Two More For 2010
Joining the Pacific women's volleyball team for the 2010 season, Pacific head coach Greg Gibbons announced the signings of Taeler Davis (Phelan, Calif.) and Sam Misa (St. George, Utah) to National Letters of Intent on Tuesday, April 20. The pair of recruits join the trio of Siga Applegate (Las Vegas, Nev.), Megan Birch (Monroe, Wash.) and Jennifer Sanders (Katy, Texas) who each signed during the early signing period with the Tigers.
A 5-10 setter out of Serrano High School in Phelan, Calif., Davis is considered to be one of the top setters in southern California coming out of high school. As a senior, Serrano earned her second straight all-region first team award as well as earning all-league first team honors after leading the Diamondbacks to their third straight Mojave River League title after posting a perfect 12-0 league record while finishing the year a perfect 16-0 overall. At the heart of the offense, Davis proved to be at her best in the CIF playoffs in which the Diamondbacks advanced to the second round after she posted 32 assists with five aces in the team's first round match.
Joining the Tigers out of the junior college ranks, Misa, a 5-11 outside hitter, will come to Pacific after spending the last two years at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, Idaho. As a Golden Eagle, Misa helped her team to the 2009 NJCAA Division I Volleyball National Championship as a sophomore. A key contributor on the championship run, Misa was named to the All-Tournament team after posting five kills, a service ace, two assists, eight digs, two blocks and a block assist in the title game. For the season, Misa posted 261 kills, fourth best on the team, while defensively adding 337 digs, second best among all the Golden Eagles, and 51 blocks.
Prior to attending the College of Southern Idaho, Misa was a four-year letterman at Dixie High School, where she earned all region honors in each of her four seasons. As a Junior and Senior, Misa helped Dixie to a second-place finish at the state tournament and earned first team all-state honors. Outside of high school volleyball, Sam played on the Jammers Club team in 2002 and 2003 and the Asics Club team from 2004 to 2006.
