TACOMA, Washington – Puget Sound volleyball head coach Mark Massey announced the Loggers' 2018 recruiting class, adding 12 new student-athletes to the program. 

"Our 2018 class is probably our most talented incoming group in over a decade," said Massey. Each player brings something very unique to the mix, and many of them have the athleticism to contribute on the court immediately. We will have a very good blend of speed, firepower, and ball-control from Day One. They are a great fit for how we like to play volleyball at Puget Sound."
