Auburn Riverside's Alexis White recently signed a letter of intent to attend and play volleyball at Missouri University of Science and Technology.

White, a 5-foot-7 setter, played four seasons for the program, helping the Ravens to a seventh-place state 4A finish this season. She was named to the All-South Puget Sound League first team as a senior and junior. She was selected to the all-district and WIAA Outstanding Scholastic teams for volleyball as a junior and sophomore.

White also played last season for the Club 253 Elite Volleyball Club.

"Lexi is an extremely hard working court leader who brings with her a wealth of very solid technical volleyball skills and knowledge to our setting position," Missouri S&T coach Jason Holt told www.minerathletics.com. "She is extremely competitive and possesses a wonderful touch on the ball, allowing her to make great decisions and run a very effective offense.

"Lexi is very quick to the ball and has excellent body control to make the tough sets look easy," Holt added. "She is also a strong defender and server to add to her effectiveness on the floor. She is incredibly intuitive on the court and will do an amazing job running the court for us."

In addition, White is an exceptional student. She has been a 4.0 student since the seventh grade.

Missouri S&T finished the season 15-17 overall, 10-8 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. The Miners finished third in the GLVC West and advanced to the conference tournament for the third straight season.

Missouri S&T, established in 1870, is one of the nation's premier universities for science and technology. The institution is located in one of the country's top-ranked small towns, Rolla Mo., a picturesque area in the wooded hills of south central Missouri near the Ozarks. The university, with an enrollment of over 8,100 students, began as a mining school, but has gained a strong reputation for the quality of its engineering program and has also prepared its students for leadership roles in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) as well as liberal arts.
