The Lewis-Clark State College volleyball team has added two recruits for the 2012 season in 6-foot-2 outside hitter Niurka Toribio and 5-11 middle blocker Regine Standley, Warrior coach LaToya Harris has announced.
Toribio, a junior, played two seasons at Snow College, a junior college in Ephraim, Utah. She earned first-team all Scenic West Athletic Conference honors both seasons.

She also led the team in aces, was second in blocks and third in digs.
Toribio is from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. She is planning to major in Business at LCSC.
Standley is a senior at LaSalle High in Union Gap, Wash., and will be a freshman next fall. She is a four-year letter winner in volleyball at LaSalle, and also earned three letters in basketball and four in track. She earned all-league first-team honors as a junior and senior in volleyball after being a second-team selection as a sophomore. Her teams won the league and district titles all three years and finished sixth at the state tournament twice and seventh once.
In basketball, Standley helped LaSalle qualify for state twice. The team placed second in the 2B tourney during her sophomore year and third in the 1A tournament her junior year. The team also won the league and district championships all three seasons.
Standley, who competed in international track meets in 2010 in China and Hong Kong, plans to major in Business and Marketing at LCSC.
