Transfers Aaron Dekalb (Oceanside, California/Palomar College) and Spencer Fournell (Redondo Beach, California/ El Camino College) will join the crusaders for their inaugural season.

Fournell is a 6-4 Middle Blocker from El Camino College. He attended Redondo Union High School in Redondo Beach, California. A three year letter for the Redondo Union varsity volleyball team, Fournell was named Daily Breeze second team all CIF.
