Brooklyn, N.Y. - Long Island University junior Sapphire Reid earned honorable mention accolades when COBRA Magazine announced its 2011 All-Northeast Region Team. COBRA Magazine celebrates the success of volleyball players of African, Samoan and Tongan descent in hopes of encouraging young girls of those ethnic groups across the country to pursue the sport.
