The Arrows' volleyball team finished fifth in the 2009 state AA championships with an 18-7 overall record and Glab led the state tournament in kills (61, 5.08 kills per set), blocks (18, 1.50 blocks per set) and points (82 in 121 sets, 6.83 pps).
She was named the AVCA/Max Preps Player of the Week after landing 38 kills against the No. 2-ranked team in the state, Sioux Falls Roosevelt. Glab played for Washington State Head Coach Andrew Palileo's SoDa Volleyball Club team in South Dakota.
Glab will attend Washington State beginning in Fall semester 2010.
