Marana standout Grace Ehler announced her decision to play for Gonzaga on Wednesday.
Ehler was one of the best front line players from Southern Arizona over the last decade with 815 kills, putting the 6-foot-1 outside hitter at No.11 since 2010.
Ehler had interest from 50 programs and Gonzaga won out with a 5-year full-ride scholarship plus an addition grant, rewarding her with the highest academic recognition the college offers.
