The Huntington University volleyball team will add a quintet of players to the program this fall, including a trio of outside hitters, providing a boost to the Forester attack.

Megan Horton of Southern Wells High School, Lindsay Ingenito of Daleville High School, Lanie McClanahan of Hagerstown High School, Hannah Maier of Kouts High School and Laura Nagle of Burris Laboratory School.

At Daleville last season, Ingenito was the top attacker for the Broncos, amassing 317 kills in just 71 sets, twice as many total kills than the next-closest for Daleville and nearly three more per set than second place. Ingenito committed just 25 errors and finished with a kill percentage of 63.5 percent.

Ingenito also added a team-best 45 blocks for Daleville, including 19 solo blocks.

Like Ingenito, Maier was dominant in attack for Kouts last fall, tallying 367 kills in 94 sets, an average of nearly four per set. Maier also tallied 93 aces for just shy of one per contest while finishing with a team-high 323 digs to lead the Mustangs.

Horton, meanwhile, was the attacking force for Southern Wells last season, finishing with 226 kills in 77 sets with just 11 errors on the year. Horton chipped in a team-high in aces with 35 and blocks with 61, including 32 solo blocks.

For Hagerstown, McClanahan finished with 241 blocks for a Tigers side that finished 33-2 and advanced to the regional semi-final. McClanahan was lethal with the serve, finishing with 78 aces in 93 sets played while finishing second in digs with 252.

Nagle, meanwhile, anchored the backline for Burris last season as a defensive specialist. Nagle finished with 305 digs, twice as many as second-best for the Owls and nearly four digs per set. Nagle was also impressive in serving, finishing with 36 aces in 87 sets.
