June 11, 2013
Tulsa, Oklahoma - Two local high school volleyball student-athletes, Abigail Cachero and Jaime Rahilly (pronounced riley), have been admitted to The University of Tulsa and will join the volleyball team as preferred walk-ons, Head Coach Steven McRoberts announced today.
"We are excited to have Abby and Jaime join our program this fall. It's great to have local talent here on campus. They will immediately make an impact in our practices and I see them being great program players in the future," said McRoberts.
Cachero is a 5'4" defensive specialist from Broken Arrow High School. She was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association all-state team as a senior, and was also recognized as the Frontier Conference MVP.
A two-time all-metro and all-conference performer, Cachero earned all-tournament team accolades in three tournaments in both her junior and senior seasons.
Rahilly, a 6'2" middle blocker, led Cascia Hall High School to state championships in each of the last two seasons. She was the MVP of the Class 4A state tournament as a junior in 2011 and earned Tournament MVP honors at the Class 5A tournament her senior season. In the 2012 state championship game against Oklahoma City's Heritage Hall, Rahilly had over 20 kills, including the game-winning kill for the Commandos.
Rahilly was an all-state selection her senior campaign and earned all-metro accolades as a junior and senior.
