FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Looking to fill the void left by the four graduating seniors from the 2012 team, Head Coach Tom Hilbert and the Colorado State women’s volleyball program have made another addition to its roster, this time in the form of 5-foot-8 defensive specialist Cassidy Denny.
"She's a well-trained defensive specialist who has good speed, quickness and coordination," Hilbert said. "We're excited for her to be part of our team."
Joining outside hitter Michelle Lawrence and middle blocker Jaliyah Bolden, Denny is the third player the Rams have added heading into the 2013 season.
Denny comes from Sacramento, Calif., where she was a three-year letterwinner at El Camino Fundamental High School. Focusing strictly on volleyball, Denny saw time on varsity all four seasons, and earned All-Capital Athletic League honors each of the three seasons she lettered.
During her senior season, Denny registered 398 kills and 279 digs while also showing her prowess at the service line with 68 service aces. Her 4.19 kills per set, 2.94 digs per set and 0.72 service aces per set averages earned her team MVP honors. Behind Denny’s strong play this past fall, El Camino was sectional champions and earned a second-place finish in the NorCal regionals.
For her accomplishments on the court, she was named to the Sacramento Bee's All-Metro first team, as well as being named to MaxPrep’s All-California second team. Just as accomplished off the court, Denny was an all-academic selection all four years at El Camino.
Aside from volleyball, Denny also competed in gymnastics, in addition to horseback riding as a hobby. She plans on studying business at CSU.
The Rams won their fourth consecutive Mountain West title in 2012, earning the league’s automatic berth to the NCAA tournament—CSU’s 18th consecutive appearance, which ranks seventh nationally. CSU went 21-8 on the year, and was ranked in the top 25 for several weeks near the beginning of the season.
