More Shortest College Volleyball Outside Hitter images
There are some short volleyball players, and the shortest to ever play the game professionally was Farhad Zarif, who measures just 165cm or 5 foot 5 inches. In the female category, the shortest to ever play the game professionally was Jorella Marie de Jesus, an international player from the Philippines, measures just 152cm or 5 foot. The heights of the two players are way below the global average for height, which proves that truly volleyball players can be short.
The shortest female outside hitter currently playing professional volleyball is Mami Uchiseto of Japan who measures 170cm or 5 feet 6.9 Inches. To be honest this isn’t actually that short in the grand scheme of things but as per my example for the Men’s bracket there are numerous examples of players much shorter than this playing through the outside position and dominating.
10. Carli Snyder, Junior, Florida. Carli Snyder's .295 hitting percentage is impressive for a hitter who has taken 719 swings for her Florida squad so far in the 2016 season, but Snyder's contributions to the Gators' 2016 success don't begin and end with offensive firepower.
I have been playing school volleyball and club volleyball since 4th grade. I have switched from MIddle Hitter to an outside hitter/ right side hitter and I really want to get into a great volleyball college. I go to many volleyball camps during the summer at multiple clubs and colleges.

Two time olympic setter. Best American setter in the history of volleyball. 5'4" and can touch 10 feet.
