April 16, 2005
NEW ORLEANS, La. - The Tulane University volleyball program added a pair of international stars as outside hitter Sara Radosevic and setter Luna Rebrovic signed National Letters of Intent with the Green Wave, first-year head coach Liz Kritza announced Saturday.
Radosevic and Rebrovic both hail from Zagreb, Croatia, and will be eligible to play for the Green Wave as freshmen in 2005. The international duo will join a solid corps of returning players that finished 17-12 last season.
"Sara and Luna have achieved great success as members of one of the most successful generations in Croatian volleyball history," Kritza said. "Their years of international playing experience and continual, year-round training will add to a bright future for Tulane volleyball.
"They carry themselves well both on and of the volleyball court. We welcome both of these talented young women into the Green Wave family with great enthusiasm."
Rebrovic was a member of Volleyball Club "Zagreb" that finished second in the Croatian Junior National Championships, and is regarded as one of the top junior setters in the country. She also played with Volleyball Club "Mladost," which won the Croatian Junior Championship.
"Luna is a hard-working, energetic setter who brings with her a great deal of international playing experience," Kritza said. She is an excellent student and a fierce competitor which will ensure her continued success as part of Tulane's volleyball program."
Radosevic, meanwhile, was a teammate of Rebrovic on both Volleyball Club "Zagreb" and Volleyball Club "Mladost." In addition, Radosevic has been a member of both Croatian National Teams at the Youth and Junior levels since 2001.
She helped lead the Junior National Team to a fourth-place finish at the European Junior Championships in 2004 and qualify for the World Junior Championships in 2005. Radosevic also trained with the Youth National Team that won the 2003 European Youth Championship.
"Sara brings Tulane a new dimension with international playing experience against some of the world's best young players," Kritza said. "Beyond her volleyball accolades, Sara is an accomplished student and a highly motivated young woman."
