HILBERT ON POLETTO: "She is a very experienced kid because she's played a ton of outdoor beach volleyball. She is long and lean and can block well and hit the ball well. She can do other ball-handling things well, too. I foresee her competing immediately for a playing position. She's a kid who's going to be very physical at the net, and will be on the court pretty early in her career. She follows in the same footsteps as a lot of our Canadians in that she's very mature and a good student," Hilbert said. "I find that those kids come in and make an immediate impact on the team's culture."
