I'd also guess that having the major D1 school in the region sponsoring women's volleyball with a newly refurbished home court might also help generate some interest in player development.

Exactly my point. Volleyball in particular requires a well integrated training and development program between clubs, HS, athletic training facilities. It is very difficult for women's volleyball to grow D1 talent outside the South, SW, and West coasts. Recent several states in the midwest have ramped up volleyball training and development for girls because of the opportunities at the D1 level.

Looking at their roster
They recruit very well across the country.
