The Pima Community College volleyball program picked up two more local committments for the 2018 season.

"Annie is a terrific all around player that is also a really explosive athlete," Pima volleyball head coach Dan Bithell said. "Adding a player like Annie at this point speaks a lot to the depth of our incoming class and I see Annie doing great things as an Aztec. We are excited to bring her into the Pima family."

Deeter, a 6-1 middle blocker, was also selected AIA second team All-Region. She was named second team All Southern Arizona by AllSportsTucson.com. She had 70 kills, 24 aces and six blocks on the season in 55 sets played.
