Litchfield was an honorable mention Academic All-State selection in 2012 and was named to the Hoosier Crossroads All-Conference team.

“We believe Syd will come in and have an immediate impact on our defense and serve receive,” said Mott. “She comes from a volleyball family; her father Randy was the head coach at Ball State for many years and runs Vision Volleyball Club out of Indianapolis.”

Walker, a 5-10 outside hitter, recorded more than 1200 kills during her prep career at West High School. She was a four-time all-district selection and was the Knoxville Interscholastic League Freshman and Sophomore of the Year.

“Peyton is the kind of athlete that every coach wants on their team,” said Mott. “She has so much passion for the game; it makes her a great player. It is great to be able to be able to add another Tennessee kid to our roster.”
