She plays aggressively and plays to win, which is what caught our eye. She is a tough player who is a standout in volleyball, basketball and in the classroom. Juliette was Wolverine All-Conference honorable mention and is an outstanding addition to our SMC volleyball team, and we are thrilled to welcome her aboard.”
