One of five sophomores on this year’s Thunderbird Volleyball team, Heather Rubis is a 5’11” outside hitter. She hails from Wright, Wyoming, where she played ball for the Wright Junior Senior High School Panthers.

As a freshman, Rubis played in 104 games, had 174 kills, and served 246 times with a completion percentage of 84.9.

Rubis’ favorite food is spaghetti, her favorite movie is “Alice in Wonderland,” her favorite hobby is camping, and she enjoys “ … playing all different kinds of sports for fun, not just volleyball.” When asked, Rubis said the one-word description of herself is “silly.”
