It is a great opportunity for her to excel as a student-athlete. Reyna will have the chance to compete in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference at the NCAA Division 2 level.
It is a competitive conference and I feel that Reyna will have no problem fitting in. Reyna has been a big part of our team this past couple years and I am sad to see her go but we wish her the best of luck!”

“I chose Western New Mexico University because it gives me the opportunity to continue my education and to play volleyball. The University has my major which was really important to me in making my decision.
The people on campus were very welcoming and the volleyball team is competitive and portrayed the ‘team’ aspect very well. I am looking forward to competing for Coach Callender!”
