Boise State Volleyball Inks California's Kaycee Gow to 2008 Roster

BOISE, Idaho The Boise State volleyball program and head coach Robin Davis were pleased to announce the signing of Kaycee Gow to a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday evening. Gow will be one of five signees to become a member of the 2008 volleyball team.

The Hemet, Calif. native will look to be an immediate impact as a middle-blocker for the Broncos. As a member of the Hemet High School volleyball team she earned the 2007 Sunbelt League Most Valuable Player as well as aiding her 2006 squad to the CIF Southern Section semifinals. Beyond high school, Gow is a member of the 951 Elite Volleyball Club team and helped her 2007 team to the finals of the 17-and-under division at the Volleyball Festival. During her 2008 club season she has helped the 951 team earn the Mid-East Qualifier Champion title.

“We’re excited to have Kaycee Gow in the program,” said Davis. “We feel like her progress over the last two years in high school and club volleyball has escalated her level to where we think she can come in and compete for a job right away.”

Her 6-foot tall frame will add significant size to the roster, although her abilities and skills will make her even more of an impact.

“Kaycee recently went up against some 6-5 outsides and middles that will play at the NCAA Division I level and more than held her own in helping her team to win the Mid-East Qualifier,” explained Davis.

Gow will join Lydia Blaha, Alexandra Diemer, Elizabeth Griffin, and Eliza Pledger, who signed during the early signing period in November, forming the core of the Broncos 2008 freshmen class.

Davis explained, “We feel like Kaycee, mixed in with our four signees from November, will give us a lot of options and depth for our 2008 fall lineup.”
