PITTSBURGH - Pitt volleyball head coach Dan Fisher has announced the addition of Angela Seman to the Pitt roster for this fall. She will join outside hitter Mariah Bell and middle hitter Kelsey O'Neill to cap off the 2014 recruiting class.
"Angela is one of the best volleyball players in the Pittsburgh area and we are excited that she wanted to stay home," Fisher said. "She possesses the necessary skill set and athleticism to excel at the next level."
Seman enjoyed a prolific career at Seneca Valley. A four-year starter, Seman began her career as a defensive specialist, then moved to libero during her sophomore season and helped lead Seneca Valley to the 2011 WPIAL AAA Championship and a PIAA semifinal berth.
"It will be fun to get her in the gym and see how quickly she adapts to the collegiate game," Fisher continued. "We expect great things from her in the future."
Additionally, Seman earned post-season recognition by being named Second Team All-WPIAL (AAA) in 2011. She continued to build on her success during her junior season, earning Second Team All-WPIAL (AAA) and AAA All-State honors.
During her senior year, Seman filled multiple positions for Seneca Valley including libero and outside hitter. She led Seneca Valley to a playoff berth after it had failed to qualify the previous season. Seman was recognized by being tabbed as First Team All-WPIAL (AAA) and AAA All-State in 2013.
"I'm really excited. My uncle played baseball at Pitt and both of my parents are alums. I'm excited that I get to go to school close to home," said Seman. "Once I visited, met the team and the coaches, I fell in love with Pitt."
The Panthers finished their first season in the ACC with an overall record of 19-14 and conference record of 11-9. Pitt won its final six matches and looks to build upon that success this upcoming season.
