TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The road back to the NCAA Tournament just got a little bit tougher for Arizona Volleyball.

Dave Rubio will not have his 6’8 star outside hitter Ashley Harris to lead the way.

When practice began on Monday, the junior-to-be was not with the team. Rubio says she has left the program and the university for the 2015-16 academic year.

Harris led UA last season in solo blocks and was the club’s top returner in kills and points.

The Wildcats went 24-10 in 2014 advancing to the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament.

It’s a huge loss for the Wildcats as Harris was expected to team with 6’6 middle blocker Mackenzie Jacobsen and help provide a formidable front line for UA in the ultra-competitive Pac-12 Conference.
