Shymansky on Barnes:
"Nicki's all-around ball control skills make her a great asset. She understands the scope of the whole game and will become a great back row player for our team. Seeing pictures of her hoisting the state title trophy this past year solidified my opinion that Nicki is a championship-caliber volleyball player."
