Rider Signs Two

LAWRENCEVILLE— Synergy is the interaction of multiple elements in a system to produce an effect different from or greater than the sum of their individual effects. 

The Rider University volleyball team is hoping that will be true in 2014, with the addition of two players from the club team Synergy.

Rider University volleyball coach Christopher Feliciano has announced that right side hitter Jennifer Borio and setter Veronica Koval have signed National Letters of Intent (NLI) to further their academic and athletic careers as members of the Class of 2018.

“We are thrilled to be adding student-athletes like Jen and Veronica to our program in 2014,” said Feliciano who led the Broncs to a six-win improvement from 2011 to 2012 and Rider increased its win total by another four matches this past season.  “Both players come from Synergy, one of the top club programs on the East Coast.”

The 5-8 Koval comes to Rider from Allentown, Pennsylvania (Parkland High School) where she was a three-year varsity letterwinner in volleyball, earning All-League honors for the 2011 Pennsylvania State champions and the 2012 Pennsylvania State runner-up.

“Veronica is one of the better setters in the area,” Feliciano said.  “She will only get better as she comes in and learns our system.  We love her personality on the floor and her desire to win.”

Koval was a District XI all-star in volleyball and also lettered twice in track and field, throwing the javelin.

Koval, who earned high academic honors in high school and was a Cum Laude Latin award recipient, is expecting to major in Biology.

The 6-1 Borio, out of Ridley Park, Pennsylvania, was a four-year letterwinner and team captain at Padua Academy in Wilmington, Delaware earning First Team All-State and First Team All-Conference honors as both a junior and senior with the team winning back to back volleyball state championships with the 2013 squad going undefeated (19-0).

“With the graduation of Bridget Sheerin, we needed to ensure that we addressed our right side position and we did that with Jen,” said Feliciano.  “She offers a tremendous balance between the offense and defense at the pin.  Her 6-1 frame and long reach will be difficult for the opposing outside hitters to defend against.”

Borio, who is on the Padua academic honor roll, is a member of the National Honor Society and is expecting to major in Education, with a Special Education minor.

Rider was one of only two Division I teams in New Jersey to have a winning record this past season and the Broncs return 12 lertterwinners for the 2014 campaign.
