UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The four-time defending national champion Penn State women's volleyball team welcomes five additions to the roster for the 2011 campaign.
As the calendar inches closer to the season-opener, GoPSUsports.com wanted to take the opportunity to introduce the Nittany Lion fans to the newcomers. We caught up with all five freshmen inside Rec Hall for video interviews. This week, GoPSUsports.com will feature one interview per day to get you ready for the season.
We continue our introduction of the Nittany Lion freshmen with Nia Grant. The Warren, Ohio, native was a three-year letterwinner and team captain at Howland High School. Grant was named the District I Volleyball Player of the Year, named MVP and picked up District I Division I First Team honors as a junior. She was also a four-year letterwinner in track.
Grant has one brother (A.J.) and one sister (Faith). Her father, African, played football for the Miami Dolphins. Grant plans on majoring in nursing.
Meet Nia Grant.
