ATLANTA - The inaugural home sand volleyball match is just 7 days away on Tuesday, March 12 at 5 p.m. against Mercer on the new courts behind the Sports Arena. One of the first 25 NCAA institutions to start the sport that was the highest watched event at the summer Olympics, Georgia State is proud to be a part of history. 

In anticipation, we are counting down the very first home match for the Panthers by introducing the 12 members of the team. 

Freshman Kaitlynn Hufstetler was a four-year letterwinner at Cherokee High School in Canton, Ga. She was 2nd All-County Team by the Cherokee Tribune. She was the first sand volleyball recruit for Georgia State from the state of Georgia.
