Coach Huston said: "Anniina will really fill a hole left by (2013 graduate) Danielle Spence in our distance events. I expect Anniina to be very competitive in training and competing as a part of our one-two punch in the distance events with teammate Erin Flanigan. Anniina's experience in international competitions will serve her well at the NCAA Division I level."
Anniina Ala-Seppälä said: "I got along with the coaches and the team extremely well from the first time we talked. I instantly felt like I was a part of the team. I also knew Rice University to be a great school academically; even very well known in Finland. This is important to me. The beautiful campus and warm climate were also tempting to me."
