Penn State Women’s Volleyball Adds Setter Seleisa Elisaia

Penn State women’s volleyball’s roster deepened once again on Thursday after picking up a major commitment from CSU Bakersfield setter Seleisa Elisaia.

Elisaia, a former first-team All-Big West honoree, will arrive in Happy Valley with one year of eligibility remaining. She’ll compete for the Nittany Lions’ open starting setter gig following Gabby Blossoms’ departure to San Diego.

“I’m excited to announce that I’ll be pursuing my master’s and playing my last season of volleyball at Penn State, where champions are made,” Elisaia wrote on Instagram.

Elisaia, a Utah native, ranked fifth among Big West programs in assists per set and ninth in aces per set. She was the only player in the country to average at least 9.0 assists and 1.3 kills per set.

Elisaia, who arrived in Irvine in 2018, led the CSUB Roadrunners with 1,025 assists throughout the 2021 season. She also showed versatility by tacking on 278 digs, 149 kills, 103 total blocks, and 30 service aces throughout the campaign.

Elisaia’s commitment continues a strong offseason for first-year head coach Katie Schumacher-Cawley, who’s tasked with replenishing a roster that’s suffered from a handful of high-profile transfers. So far, she’s obtained commitments from transfers like Utah outside hitter Zoe Weatherington, Purdue middle blocker Taylor Trammell, and Long Beach State outside hitter Kashauna Williams, a fellow former All-Big West honoree.
