“We are so excited to have Destiny joining our Aggie Volleyball Family,” head coach Bird Kuhn said. “We look forward to her bringing experience and perspective to the team. Creating depth and competition in our gym has always been a focus in building an ‘earn it’ mentality. Destiny’s drive to get better at this stage of her career will have a positive impact on this group.”
