MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University volleyball coach Reed Sunahara has announced the addition of three students-athletes for the 2024 calendar year.
Brenna Ginder (Fort Wayne, Indiana), Grace Langer (Centennial, Colorado) and Remi Nuss (Overland Park, Kansas) will join the Mountaineers next season.
“We are excited about this recruiting class, all three are playing at a high level and will have an impact on our team when they arrive,” coach Reed Sunahara said. “Our goal was to add another pin hitter/arm and more ball control. Grace is a versatile player who can play all three positions in the front row and add size. Brenna and Remi are ball control and defensive players that will add a lot of value to the back row. I am looking forward to the fall when all three will join our squad.”

Ginder comes to Morgantown from Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she played for Pandy Sinish at Carroll High School and Lloy Ball at Team Pineapple Volleyball Club.

Ginder was named to the IHSVCA All-District and All-State teams, as well as the academic all-state team. She also was named to the Prep Dig Top 5 Ranked in Indiana Players list.
