Forward averaged 19.1 points per game last year.

May 8, 1998

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.

Volnaya joins 5-8 guard Telisha Quarles (Louisa, Va./Louisa County) in this year's recruiting class.

The Cavaliers compiled a 19-10 record and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season. Virginia returns 10 veterans for the 1999 season, including seniors Monick Foote and Tiffany Bower, who sat out last year due to injuries.
