West Plains, Mo. Najla Bray, a 5-foot, 11-inch middle blocker from Beachwood Ohio, has signed paperwork to join the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly Volleyball team this fall.

"We are excited to have Najla join our Grizzly Volleyball family," Head Coach Paula Wiedemann said.

"We saw her at the Mid-East Qualifier in Indianapolis, and she caught our attention immediately," the coach continued. "Her ability to come in and compete with our team is there, and she has a high ceiling athletically."

Wiedemann pointed out Bray was an all-conference selection during her career at Beachwood High School, and she was on the school's academic honor roll.

"We are looking forward to getting her on the court with us this fall," Wiedemann said.
