Brie King becomes captain of Orange team, Nia Grant joins roster

Athletes Unlimited
Feb 27, 2021

Team captain Ali Bastianelli (middle blocker) has been moved to the inactive list and will be unavailable to play opening week of Athletes Unlimited Volleyball competition which begins today at Fair Park Coliseum.

In accordance with Athletes Unlimited rules, Bastianelli will be replaced by setter Brie King as Captain for week one as a result of her having the highest leaderboard ranking on her team after six pre-season scrimmages.  In addition, to maintain balance at positions Nia Grant (middle blocker) has been reassigned to Team King.

Because Bastianelli was on a roster at the time she became inactive, she will continue to accumulate team win points this week with Team King.
