2009 All-American Kyndra Abron will be honored before the match against Georgia.
Carli Weiler begins her first season with the Spartan coaching staff, serving as a volunteer student assistant coach after completing her senior season in 2011. She was a defensive specialist and libero at MSU from 2008-11 and will be a vital asset to the program.
Her knowledge as a player and familiarity with the program will bode well for Michigan State.
She appeared in every match last season for Michigan State and competed in 118 matches in her career. She was second on the team in digs with 264, her career high, and also had 52 assists and 19 service aces last season.
Weiler will assist with video scouting and analysis as well as statistics for the Spartans. She will also help with the tutelage of the defensive specialists and the liberos.
