SD Mines Netters Add 2 New Recruits to Program
RAPID CITY, S.D. --- The South Dakota School of Mines women’s
volleyball program is proud to announce the signing of two scholar-athletes set
to join the team for the 2016 season as Hannah Stevenson and Allie Boggs will
be the newest Lady Hardrockers.
Stevenson is 6-foot right side hitter Chandler, Ariz., while
Boggs is a 5-11 setter out of Gering, Neb.
“One of our goals as we move forward with (Rocky Mountain
Athletic Conference) play is to become a more physical team,” said Hardrocker
volleyball head coach Doug Tabbert. “Hannah and Allie both help us in that
regard. In addition, they both seem to have a solid appreciation for the
quality of our institution and the opportunities it provides our students
beyond athletics. They seem to see the ‘big picture’ and they have
excelled at pursuits outside of volleyball, and those are great qualities for
our student-athletes to possess. We welcome both of them into our program
Stevenson was a standout player and team captain helping her
Perry High School Pumas to a 29-7 record in 2015. As a senior she tallied 150 kills, recorded 88
total blocks, 46 digs and 36 assists.
“Hannah has the potential to really help us at the net,”
Tabbert said. “Her length and athleticism should allow her to be a
formidable blocker. In addition, her ability to attack is continually
improving. She has a very high ceiling and I’m excited to see what all she can
do as a collegiate player.”
As a setter for the Gering High School Bulldogs, Boggs was
named to the 2014 Nebraska Class B All-State Honorable Mention list. As a
senior she notched 23 aces, had 45 total blocks, came up with 237 digs and
contributed with 602 assists.
“Allie is an experienced and accomplished player with solid
setting skills,” Tabbert said. “Besides her skill set, she brings a nice
combination of size, length and athleticism to the positon. What I think
stands out the most is how she carries herself with confidence. I expect
her to adapt well to the college game and make her mark on our program.
