Former prep volleyball stars to lead Tar Heels at UC Davis

It will be a homecoming this weekend for former high school volleyball standouts Cora Harms of El Dorado and Kayla Berringer of Oak Ridge.

Both will play for North Carolina in the UC Davis women's volleyball tournament.

The 5-foot-8 Harms is a senior setter for the Tar Heels, who was second on the team in assists last season with 441. Harms was The Bee's Female Athlete of the Year in 2009.

"We're going to play people we've played with in club and people we played against our whole lives, so that's going to be fun," Harms said.

Berringer, a 6-1 junior outside hitter, was third in kills with 326 as North Carolina finished 24-9. She was The Bee's Volleyball Player of the Year in 2009.

"It's real exciting to go home and play in California ... a lot of family and friends can see us," Berringer said.

The Tar Heels will face Santa Clara 5 p.m. on Friday; and Utah (1 p.m.) and UC Davis (7 p.m.) on Saturday.

Harms' parents, El Dorado track coaches Peanut and Tena, are members of the UC Davis Athletic Hall of Fame.

"Sorry, but this time we will be rooting against the Aggies," Peanut said.
