'We are extremely excited to add Sarah to our 2020 class,' said head coach . 'Sarah comes from one of the top clubs in the country and has been able to compete and a very high level. She will not only add athleticism, but also speed and quickness to our libero/defensive specialist position. Sarah has good technique both in digging and serve receive and with her agility will allow her to adapt to the college game quickly. She has great range, reads at a high level and is a true competitor that gives her all each and every point. Sarah's work ethic, commitment to academics and passion for volleyball and the teams she is a part of will be a great fit for our program. We are thrilled to have Sarah and her awesome family as members of our UNI Panther Family!'
The newest member of the Panther family played her prep career at Rosary High School where she was a three time all conference performer. Konovodoff recorded 1040 digs in her senior season, averaging 4.5 digs per set while recording 696 serve receptions and 109 aces.
Konovodoff chose UNI over Wisconsin, Nebraska and Illinois stating, 'UNI has a great program for my major and the campus is the right size. I fell in love with the volleyball team, coaches, and program. UNI simply felt like home and the place for me to be.'
