After spending two seasons with the University of Miami, Anna Haak has transferred up north to Marquette. Haak will be available to compete in the 2017 season and has two years left of eligibility.
The 5’11” outside hitter averaged 3.21 kills per set and 2.36 digs per set in her final year with the Hurricanes. In total, she’s recorded 20 double-doubles in her two years of play at the collegiate level.
“Anna comes with a quite a bit of experience in both international and collegiate volleyball,” Marquette head coach Ryan Theis said in the Marquette release. “She is a great addition to a young squad and has great passion for the game that will excite our players.”
Haak is orginially from Sweden, where her club went 37-0 and won the 2015 Svensk Volleyball League championship. She also won gold at the NEVZA U19 tournament in 2014.
Marquette has developed a solid program in the Big East, winning 23 games a season ago. They’ve been to the NCAA Tournament six straight seasons and won a match to advance to the round of 32 in three of them. Haak joins seven incoming freshmen and another transfer in Kayli Trausch, a 6’0″ middle blocker from McHenry County College. The newcomers are vast, but for a program that has won 20 or more matches in seven straight seasons, so are the expectations.
