Redshirt sophomore Daniel Tublin (Fox Chapel) saw minimal playing time last season, but the 6-foot-8 outside hitter suddenly is coming into his own with the Stanford men's volleyball team.

Tublin had a breakthrough match against George Mason in his first college start. He recorded 14 kills, eight digs and two blocks in a 3-1 (25-18, 23-25, 25-16, 25-18) victory.

Tublin has 16 digs, 27 kills and nine blocks this season for Stanford (4-1, 1-1 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation), which is ranked No. 2 in the country.

The Tomcats will open their men's volleyball season Jan. 26 at home against Eastern Mennonite, and two local players are on the roster.

Sophomore Charlie Tindall (Deer Lakes) will be a key setter after compiling 41 kills and 62 digs in 43 sets last season.

Junior defensive specialist Corey Swarmer (Leechburg) also will look to make an impact. Leechburg does not have boys volleyball, so Swarmer did not play for a high school team.

Penn State Behrend

Senior forward Holly Bourquin (Fox Chapel) became the 10th player in school history to score 1,000 career points. The 5-11 Bourquin is second on the team in scoring this season at 10.5 points per game while also averaging 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals for the Lions (10-6, 8-3 AMCC).

Lehigh

Senior Shane Welsh (Burrell) is 9-5 this season, including a 5-4 mark in duals. Welsh hopes to gear up for another strong postseason.

Last year, he won an EIWA title as the No. 6 seed and qualified for the NCAA Tournament.
