Today’s Throwback Thursday photo is of former UNC Asheville volleyball player Raquel Miotto.


Raquel came to Asheville from Brazil and enjoyed a spectacular career as a libero. She played for the Bulldogs from 2006-2009 and became the school and Big South's all-time leader in digs with 2,688.


Raquel earned All-Conference honors every year she played for the Blue & White as she was a first team selection in 2006, 2008 and 2009 and made the second team in 2007. She made the league’s All-Decade team for 2000’s last fall. In addition, Miotto helped lead the Bulldogs to the 2009 Big South Conference regular-season championship.
