FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State volleyball program added yet another talented freshman-to-be to its roster on Wednesday, when Head Coach Tom Hilbert announced that Deedra Foss would join the Rams in the fall.
Foss, a 5-8 setter from McKenna, Wash., earned four varsity letters in volleyball at Lakes High School, and was a member of the Kent Juniors Volleyball Club. She led the Lancers to back-to-back appearances in the state tournament, the school's first bids in 31 years, finishing sixth in 2008 and fifth in 2009. Foss earned first-team all-state honors as the top setter and 3A South Puget Sound League Player of the Year honors as a senior in 2009. She was also selected as a second-team all-state honoree in 2008 and earned an honorable mention nod as a sophomore in 2007. Foss concluded her playing career at LHS with several records to her credit, having led the team in kills, assists, aces and blocks in each of her last two seasons.
Hilbert on Foss: "Deedra is an experienced setter on a great club team. She was very highly recruited and we feel lucky she has decided to become a Ram. She is strong, agile and jumps very well. She has great hands and can deliver the ball wherever it needs to go. I compare her a lot to former Ram Melissa Courtney in the type of athlete and player she is. I feel confident she will be a solid contributor to this program in the future."
Foss joins early signees Kelsey Snider (Pomona High School/Aravada, Colo.), Marlee Reynolds (Dalhart High School/Dalhart, Texas) and Katie Rutherford (Sunrise Mountain High School/Peoria, Ariz.) to complete the Rams 2010 recruiting class.
