DURHAM, N.H. - The University of New Hampshire volleyball team announced today the signing of two recruits for the 2001 season. Bonnie Wilson, a 5-11 outside-hitter from Moraga, Calif., and Erin Walker, a 6-0 middle-hitter from Fulton, N.Y.
Walker, the younger sister of UNH senior middle-hitter Jen Walker, who was a First Team America East All-Conference selection this season, was the MVP of her G. Ray Bodley High School in 1999 and 2000. She was twice and an all-league honorable mention and led the league in kills and blocks in '99 and 2000.
"We are excited to have another of the Walker family become part of our program," said UNH head coach Jill Hirschinger, whose Wildcats finished second in the conference this season at 23-11, 13-3 in America East. "Erin has all the tools necessary to carry on the successful tradition of the UNH volleyball program. She is a hard worker and very gifted athlete and student."

"Bonnie excels both on the court and in the class room," said Hirschinger. "She is a very talented athlete who will have an immediate impact on UNH's volleyball program. She is a very aggressive and competitive player. She has always been a winner and we are looking or Bonnie to continue her winning traditions at UNH."
