CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.- vetlana Volnaya, a 6-1 forward from Independence (Kan.) Community College, has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at the University of Virginia. Volnaya played last year for the Lady Pirate program and averaged 19.1 points and 6.8 rebounds. She hails from Minsk, Belarus, the same hometown as Virginia freshman Elena Kravchenko.
