Colorado volleyball added two different players to the 2020 signing class.
Graduate transfer Rachael Fara from Dayton signed along with Colorado native Morgan Riddle of Chaparral High School. Fara is a 22-year old, 6-foot, 3-inch graduate transfer middle and rightside from Naperville, Illinois, while Riddle is an 18-year old, 5-9 outside/defensive specialist.
“We are thrilled to welcome Rachael and Morgan into the Buff family,” said head coach Jesse Mahoney. “Both are outstanding volleyball players and even better people who will represent the Colorado Volleyball program well on the court, the classroom and in the community.”
Fara joins the Buffaloes most recently from Dayton University. She will be entering her sixth year of college after competing for Northwestern University from 2015-17, including a medical redshirt in 2017. After not playing in 2018, she returned to the court in 2019 for the Flyers. She appeared in 65 sets in 22 matches, totaling 99 kills for a .316 hitting percentage and 43 total blocks.
Riddle joins Colorado from Chaparral High School and the Front Range Volleyball Club. Riddle was a key member of the Chaparral team this fall and helped her team to 5A State Championship. She dished out four kills in the final match as well as a pair of blocks and 15 digs.
