RAPID CITY, S.D. --- The South
Dakota School of Mines women’s volleyball season is less than a month from its
first match, but the Lady Hardrockers are still solidifying their line up with
the recent addition of Kylee Gorngpratum to the 2014 roster.
Gorngpratum, a native of Tampa,
Fla., is a 5-foot-4-inch setter who will join the Hardrockers after a
successful high school career competing for the Robinson High School Knights.
"Kylee is a great last
minute addition to our Hardrocker roster for this fall, said Hardrocker
volleyball head coach Tiffany McCampbell. “I am excited about her versatility
as a defensive specialist and as a setter.”
During her senior year,
Gorngpratum finished with 566 assists, 57 aces, 252 digs, 62 kills and 12 total
blocks. She was a varsity captain for three-straight years, earned team MVP
honors in 2013, received second team All-County at the setter position as a
senior and earned honorable mention as a junior.
“Kylee is coming off of one of
the best seasons in history at Robinson High School,” McCampbell added. “She is
bringing a versatility and athleticism as a player that will only add to our
level of ball control this fall.”
Gorngpratum is also an
accomplished flag football competitor. At the end of the 2014 season, she
earned the Miss Flag Football Florida Dairy Farmer Player of the Year, was
named to the All-State First Team and earned Team MVP honors.
Kylee plans to major in
Interdisciplinary Sciences while at South Dakota Mines and we look forward to
having Kylee in our program,” McCampbell said.
