“I think that it is going to be a huge change,” Quintas said. “I’m excited to be on a new team and I am just thankful that I got the chance to take my game to the next level.

“Coach Brandt is really welcoming and really makes you feel wanted. That’s always comforting being away from home.”

Brandt says that Quintas loves the game of volleyball.

“It has been fun getting to know Riley because she has so much passion for the game and has such a desire to improve her skills to be successful at the college level,” Brandt said. “I believe she will be the type of athlete who pushes others to be their best. We are very excited to start working with her.”

Eagle Grove volleyball coach Jim McLaughlin agreed with Brandt about Quintas’ passion for the game.

“I’ve enjoyed watching Riley grow as a volleyball player.”
