Following a breakout freshman campaign, Panas sophomore Yvette Burcescu is already making headlines after grabbing a preseason All-American Watch List selection from PrepVolleyball.com.
Burcescu, who is listed at 6-foot-1, was one of 161 outside hitters to garner recognition throughout the country. The younger sister of former Journal News players of the year and Division I players Vivian and Brigitte Burcescu, Yvette was a Journal News first-team all-star last season.
She was the only non-junior or senior to receive recognition in the end-of-season awards.
