July 10, 2006

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - New head coach Shaun Kupferberg has landed his first signee at JU, but it's a player that he's very familiar with.

Sara Bendorff, who led Kupferberg's last Northwest team with 391 kills, has followed her coach across the country to join the program at JU.

"She's an incredible athlete and a great all-around player," said Kupferberg. "She'll be a great addition to our front row for the next three years."

In her freshman season at Northwest, Bendorff averaged 4.65 kills per game to go along with 26 blocks in leading Northwest to 25-3 record, including a 16-2 mark in conference play.
