AVCA All-American Danetta Boykin Signs with IU
April 17, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana Volleyball has added another player for the 2013 season in junior college transfer Danetta Boykin. Boykin transfers in from LA Pierce College in California as a first team AVCA All-American after leading her team to back-to-back undefeated seasons. A 6'1 outside hitter from Los Angeles, Boykin is the sixth player to sign with Sherry Dunbar's program for the 2013 season, joining Miami (FL) transfer Awele Nwaeze and high school signees Allison Hammond, Taylor Lebo, Jazzmine McDonald and Megan Tallman.
"Danetta is a great addition to our program," said Dunbar. "Her experience at a high-level junior college and most importantly her winning mentality will help us a great deal. In her two seasons at Pierce College, her team never lost a match. That alone will make us a better program. Add her athletic ability into the mix and I couldn't be happier that Danetta is a Hoosier."
Boykin earned first team All-America honors and was named Most Valuable Player of the Western State Conference in 2012. Boykin led Pierce College to consecutive California Community College Athletic Association titles, including a 33-0 record in both 2011 and 2012. Boykin earned CCCAA all-tournament team honors during both seasons at Pierce and was the MVP of the State Tournament in 2011. Boykin graduated from Birmingham High School in Los Angeles. She is the daughter of Terry McWilliams and granddaughter of Jewel and Bill Cunningham.
