FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Monday night at Moby Arena boosters and fans of the CSU volleyball program, along with members of the local media, caught their first glimpse of the highly anticipated 2010 incarnation of the Rams.
Speaking in front of a packed house at the Moby Arena Hall of Fame Room, Hilbert, entering his 14th season at CSU, introduced each of the members of team and gave all in attendance a sneak preview of what to expect when CSU opens Aug. 27 at Moby Arena against ACC power Duke.
Colorado State is poised for a special season in 2010, returning five starters and 10 letterwinners from a 2009 squad that posted a 25-6 record, finished 17th in the national rankings and appeared in the Regional Semifinal round of the NCAA tournament.
Colorado State returns a decorated roster for the 2010 season, including three players - Danielle Minch, Megan Plourde and Evan Sanders - who earned all-Mountain West honors in 2009. Minch, a senior outside hitter, was named the 2009 MWC Player of the Year. Head Coach Tom Hilbert is coming off of his seventh MWC Coach of the Year award. Minch and Plourde also return after having garnered 2009 AVCA all-West region honors.
Hilbert also noted the senior outside hitter Jacque Davisson has been impressive early in preseason workouts, and is ready to have an “outstanding senior season.”
In addition to the Rams’ host of returning talent, CSU welcomes one of the top recruiting classes in the nation to Moby Arena. The 2010 freshman class was ranked 15th nationally by PrepVolleyball.com, the highest ranking among Mountain West Conference schools. It marked the fourth time since 2005 that the Rams appeared on the list. According to PrepVolleyball.com, the Rams’ incoming class of Deedra Foss, Marlee Reynolds, Katie Rutherford and Kelsey Snider, will rank as one of the most physical classes recruited by Hilbert and his staff. In addition, the Rams have also added sophomore middle blocker Sam Peters, a product of Englewood, Colo. (Cherry Creek H.S.), who transferred to CSU after spending her freshman season at Santa Clara University.
