Dartmouth is bolstering its 2017 Women’s Volleyball roster with the addition of Tori Dozier, a transfer from North Carolina State. Dozier will be a sophomore in 2017 as she has three years left of eligibility.
“Tori brings a breadth of competitive experience to complete a very skilled, passionate and hardworking class,” Darmouth head coach Gilad Doron said in the team’s release of the news. “We are elated to add such a high-quality person to our ranks.”
A 5’10” setter out of Raleigh, North Carolina, Dozier attended Cardinal Gibbons High School. She was a two-time high school state champion and was listed on the 2015 Under Amour Second-Team All-America. After her prep career, Dozier stayed at home to become a member of the Wolf Pack. As a true freshman in 2016, she failed to see the court.
“Tori possesses the skillset and mindset that, along with her teammates, can position Dartmouth among the Ivy elite,” Doron added in the release.
Dozier becomes just one of two listed setters on Dartmouth’s roster with the other being a sophomore as well. That other setter, Corrine Cox, recorded 284 assists in 2016 – good for second on the team. The leader in assists was actually Zoe Leonard who is listed on the roster as a libero for 2017.
Dartmouth finished 2016 with a 9-16 record after going just 2-12 in Ivy League play. It was the first losing season for Dartmouth since 2013.
