The Texas State Bobcats are excited to welcome two Hays County locals to their volleyball team the next two years. Power duo Ryann Torres and Trista Strasser have been playing volleyball together since the seventh grade, and have attended Texas State volleyball camps annually. Torres will be trading out Rebel red for Bobcat maroon in 2020, while Strasser will be arriving shortly behind her in 2021.
Strasser has been an athlete her whole life, but focused more on basketball until she realized her personal growth in volleyball once she started to play on the Hays High School varsity team.
"I knew how much I loved the sport and how much I've grown," said Strasser. "And all the amazing people I've had such great friendships with."
