#17 Anna Sims
Hometown: Trussville, Ala.
Previous School: Hewitt Trussville HS
Coach’s Comments: Anna brings a great middle blocker presence to the team with her ability to not only put up a great block but add another weapon to our offense with her powerful attack. She was solid wall for us last year with her great blocking skills and will only get better as she goes along.
