UNK rising Sophomore Anna Squiers had a pretty impressive first year at the collegiate level to say the least.

From helping bring the MIAA title back to the Health and Sports Center once again, to representing the Lopers on the national stage in discus.

Since joining the Squirettes, Anna helped the team to an undefeated record while playing at home, racking up 205 kills.

With her season highs coming in the MIAA title against Missouri Western where she totaled 14, one of five games getting in the double digits for kills.

Then in outdoor track, Squiers made her mark placing second at the conference championships in discus, while finishing 20th at Nationals.

"I definitely wasn't expecting this," Squiers explained. "But coming in I knew I was going to have to work really hard if I wanted to see some playing time, or if I wanted to succeed in track."

"And that's what I did so I guess it worked pretty well," Squiers continued." Those numbers are great, but I'm definitely not satisfied, so I'm going to come in here every day this summer and just try to bump up those numbers for next year."

"That's something we talked about at our end of the year meeting for volleyball," Squiers said. "We're not satisfied with being MIAA champs and stuff like that."

Squiers also totaled 28 digs on the volleyball court, next season she'll be joined by her Sister Madison Squiers.
