Three Casper College Volleyball players have signed their letters of intent to play volleyball at the next level. The three sophomores are Brynne Hopeau-Lampitoc, Giulia Santuari, and Jada Suguturaga.

Hopeau-Lampitoc did not play her freshman year due to an injury, according to Angel Sharman. “Brynne finished her sophomore year strong,” noted Sharman, head coach of the Lady Thunderbirds Volleyball team.

Hopeau-Lampitoc, from Ewa Beach, Hawaii, will be joining the Lady Warhawks of Auburn University at Montgomery. As a defensive player, Hopeau-Lampitoc had 391 digs for the season. She will be joined at AUM by Santuari, who came to Casper from Pergine Valsugana, Italy. Santuari is known for her hitting prowess. The Division II Warhawks play in the Gulf South Conference and finished the 2021 season 17-14 under head coach Flavia Siqueira.

Suguturaga, who hails from South Jordan, Utah, will be heading to Division II Augusta University in Augusta, Georgia. Suguturaga, an all-around player for the T-Birds, had 330 digs, 19 solo blocks, and 72 blocking assists for 2021. The Lady Jaguars ended the season 25-9 under head coach Sharon Quarles.

“I’m very proud of all three of these players; their success and work ethic on and off the court is so strong that they will succeed throughout life. I have enjoyed the two years with them, and I look forward to watching them grow at the next level,” said Sharman.
