Bronco Volleyball Team Begins Fall Camp

Coach Shawn Garus welcomed 15 student-athletes to the opening of volleyball practice yesterday, in preparation for the opener August 24 in Seattle, Washington.  

The Lady Broncos will go through three daily training sessions to get ready for the upcoming season.  Blue Through and Through will feature a detailed look at the 2012 Broncos in the next few days.

Young Promoted to Assistant Coach

Boise State alumnus Alisha Young has been promoted to Assistant Coach of the Bronco volleyball team by head coach Shawn Garus.  Young served as a volunteer assistant last fall before being hired as director of operations this past spring.  Young replaces Skydra Orzen, who left the program for other opportunities.

Young will train the middle blockers, be in charge of the video program, assist with day-to-day operations, and help out with the team's outreach/community service activities, clinics, tournaments and camps.

Alisha was an all-conference performer and academic honoree from 2007-2010, finishing second all-time in career points with 1,271.5 and ninth in kills with 1,055.  Young set the school record for points in a season in 2010 with 524.5.
