Las Cruces DS Cameron Rodriguez

Rodriguez walks-on at NMSU

Congrats to former Las Cruces DS/Libero Cameron Rodriguez for earning a spot on the NMSU Aggie Volleyball team as a walk-on.

A 2022 graduate, Rodriguez played libero for the majority of her junior year and moved over to DS as a senior. Having faced Centennial over her high school career will have prepared her for any heat–she regularly defended against a D1-caliber hitter in Tess Fuqua.

Good luck, Cameron!
