(Kansas City, Mo.) – Head Coach Christi Posey and the UMKC volleyball team have added a pair of student-athletes to the roster for the upcoming season in Emma Dyer and Adasia Bromberger.

“Our staff and players are very excited about the addition of Emma and Adasia to our program,” Posey said.  “As a result of several campus visits, home matches and summer volleyball camps, both players feel extremely comfortable with our team.” 

Dyer joins the ‘Roos out of nearby Higginsville, Mo, where she helped Lafayette County C-1 High School to 55 wins, three district runner-up finishes, two Missouri River Valley-East Conference runner-up finishes and a Missouri River Valley-East Conference title in 2013 in her three seasons on the team.  During her tenure, she set the school record with 11 blocks in a match, while being named First Team All-Missouri River Valley-East Conference and First Team-All District in each of her three season and being selected First Team All-Region, First Team All-State and to the MO-KAN All Star team as a senior.

“We believe Emma’s greatest strengths are her physicality and explosive power,” Posey added.  “With her determination and drive, she has the potential to be a quality middle with great versatility.  She has limited experience but will add a unique dynamic to our team because of her strength.  A very intelligent student-athlete, Emma will join her volleyball teammates and fit in immediately with the high academic standards we have come to appreciate with our team.”

Bromberger, meanwhile, comes to Kansas City from Omaha, Neb., where she was named Honorable Mention All-State her junior and senior seasons at Elkhorn High School.   Last season, she was named All-Eastern Midlands Conference and Honorable Mention her junior and sophomore seasons.  Twice she served as Team Captain and won the team's defensive award, while being named All-Omaha Metro as a senior.

“Adasia, another high achiever in the classroom, will add exceptional depth to the defensive specialists group,” Posey said.  “Her quickness, platform skills and volleyball IQ will enable her to compete for playing time early in her career.  She displays great poise and an innate ability to read hitters well.”

The ‘Roos kick-off the 2014 season on Aug. 29 when they head to the Omaha Classic to face Drake.
