Blinn College freshman Celeste Ramirez announced today that she has signed with the University of New Orleans after one season with the Buccaneer volleyball program.
Ramirez, a 5-foot-8 freshman setter from Antonian College Prep in San Antonio, tallied 233 assists (4.57 per set) and 50 digs (0.98 per set) in her freshman season, helping the Buccaneers go 25-7 and reach the Region XIV Conference Tournament semifinals.
“She gave us the capability to run two setters on the floor at the same time,” said coach Erin Mellinger. “Celeste really proved herself this season and I think she’s going to be terrific at New Orleans.”
UNO went 8-15 last season and will enter its first season as a full member of the Southland Conference in 2013.
Last month, Blinn defensive specialist Cara Fisher signed with the University of Mississippi and outside hitter Tyanna Roy signed with San Jose State University.
Blinn has one of the most storied volleyball programs in the NJCAA, with two national championships, 14 consecutive winning seasons, 15 All-Americans and 56 players who have continued their playing careers at four-year colleges and universities.
