Oregon Tech Signs Volleyball Trio
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech head volleyball coach Jason Corwin announced the first group of signees for the upcoming 2012 season. Kara Young, Krista Galloway and Alyssa Deardorff are set to join the Tech program as freshman when the Owls begin play this fall.
Deardorff (Bellevue, Wash.) competed at Interlake High School where she led her team to the Seamount 2A League championship, also earning KingCo 3A/2A second-team all-league honors as a setter.
“Alyssa has a deceptively strong block move along with an ability to set the quick-ball in multiple gaps in consistently hittable zones,” said Corwin. “We are looking forward to Alyssa joining our 2012 recruiting class.”
Alyssa is the daughter of Doug and Linda Deardorff and will major in environmental sciences at Oregon Tech beginning in the fall.
Young (Coos Bay, Ore.), a four-year letter-winner at Marshfield High School, earned First-Team All-State honors after leading MHS to a 4th
place finish in the 2011 state championships. The 5-10 outside hitter is a, two-time First-Team All-State recipient, a three-time MWL first-team all-conference recipient and two-time MWL MVP award winner for the Pirates, while earning 12 varsity letters at Marshfield (volleyball, basketball and softball).
“Kara is the only athlete at Marshfield to receive 12 varsity letters and we are excited she chose to continue her volleyball career at Oregon Tech,” mentioned Corwin. “Kara is a six rotation outside hitter, and an aggressive attacker with an impressive toolbox of shots.”
Kara is the daughter of Rex and Tammy Young and will major in medical imaging beginning this fall at Oregon Tech.
Galloway (Snoqualmie, Wash.), a 6-1 middle blocker, led Mt. Si High School to a 6th
place finish at the 3A Washington State Championship in 2011 and to a 3rd
place showing at the SeaKing District 3A championships. Galloway earned second-team KingCo 3A/2A all-conference honors at MSHS her senior season and HM accolades as a junior.
“Krista is relatively new to volleyball but is already at an impressive level. I think she will work herself into a very high ceiling of achievement in our conference,” said Corwin. “She has exceptional timing with her block, is always ready to hit and our setters are excited to get in the gym and start working with her.”
Krista is the daughter of Rodger and Kelly Galloway and will major in renewable energy beginning at Oregon Tech this fall.
