The La Salle University women’s volleyball program has landed a commitment from class of 2019 recruit Marisa Guisti. A 6’1″ middle blocker, Guisti becomes the first 2019 commit for La Salle recorded in the VolleyMob Recruiting Database and will join the program for the fall of 2019 season.
A junior at LaSalle-Peru High School in LaSalle, Illinois, Guisti helped her team to a 33-4 record this past season en route to a Class 3A State Tournament Appearance. Individually, according to her MaxPreps profile, she totaled 215 kills (2.5 per set) on a .361 hitting percentage, 99 blocks (1.2 per set), 68 digs (0.8 per set) and 24 aces (0.3 per set).
For her performance, Guisti was listed on the 2017 Volleyball All-Area First-Team in the Illinois Valley. She was also an All-Conference pick, and was even listed as being a former Eastern Illinois University commit by the NewsTribune.
On the club circuit, Guisti plays with UNO Volleyball and the 17 Elite team. Video of her play via her Hudl page can be seen here.
La Salle is coming off of a 14-16 season in which they went 4-10 playing in the Atlantic-10. Their 2017 roster featured four middle blockers – two of which are on pace to have graduated by the time Guisti arrives in her first season with the program.
