CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—Four members of the Virginia volleyball program, seniors Morgan Blair, Tori Janowski and Sydney Shelton and junior Lauren Fuller, have been named captains for the 2014 season, head coach Dennis Hohenshelt announced Wednesday (Aug. 27).
"I am excited for Tori, Morgan, Sydney and Lauren,” Hohenshelt said. “All four have displayed the leadership required to help our team become the best it can be."

Janowski, a 5-10 outside hitter from Sterling, Va., was a 2013 AVCA All-East Coast Region honorable mention and was named to the All-ACC Third Team. She started all 32 matches last year and recorded a career-high 462 kills, the eighth-most in UVa single-season history.
