Cowgirls Volleyball Adds Defensive Whiz Yaste
LARAMIE _ Kiahlei Yaste, a defensive specialist from Sheridan College, has committed to play for the Wyoming volleyball team in 2018, according to head coach Chad Callihan.
“Kiahlei is a versatile player who will be a great addition to our backcourt,” Associate head coach Dan Georgalas said. “Her ability to pass and defend will provide depth in an area that we struggled at sometimes last season. Being a local player, I know she will come in to our program with a blue collar work ethic and show pride in wearing the Brown and Gold. We look forward to the addition of her energy and ball control skills to our gym.”
The 5-foot-8 Yaste helped lead Sheridan College to a second-place finish in the Region IX Tournament this past fall. She recorded 143 kills, 21 aces and 37 blocks in her final season in Sheridan. She also had 288 digs, which was third on the team. Yaste tallied 241 kills, 19 aces, 174 digs and 47 blocks in her first season with the Generals.
