Hardrocker Volleyball Team Signs Wyoming Setter

RAPID CITY, S.D. --- The South Dakota School of Mines women's volleyball team continues to solidify its roster for the 2019 season as Hardrocker volleyball head coach announced the addition of sophomore transfer . Stanley comes to the Hardrocker volleyball program after spending her freshman season at Casper College with the Thunderbirds in Wyoming.

'Addie is such a phenomenal addition to our 2019 roster and volleyball family,' Torvi said. 'She is athletic, competitive, driven and a fantastic young woman with the character traits we hold as a very high priority in our program.'

The 5-foot-7-inch setter originally from Baggs, Wyoming, played high school volleyball for the Little Snake River School Rattlers where she helped guide her team to a state championship as a senior. During her time there she was a team captain and earned All-Conference, All-State, Academic All-State, Academic All-Conference and Team MPV honors.

'Addie made it very clear to us that this is where she wanted to be and we are confident in her ability to impact us greatly,' Torvi said. 'I am excited to watch Addie compete with our other setters and make our program more competitive.'
While at South Dakota Mines, Stanley plans to pursue a major in Business Management in Technology.

'Being a Hardrocker means you're a student before an athlete --- and the coaches and my teammates hold each other to a higher standard,' Stanley said.
