Rocky adds former Central volleyball standout
BILLINGS – July 8, 2015 – Rocky Mountain College volleyball coach Laurie Kelly has announced that former Billings Central Catholic High School athlete Abbie Hanser is joining the Battlin’ Bears’ roster for the 2015 season.
Hanser, a 6-foot-1 middle hitter, is transferring from Southern Oregon University. She joins the Battlin’ Bears as a redshirt junior with two years of eligibility remaining. This past season Hanser helped the Raiders to a 24-7 record and an NAIA national tournament appearance.
While at Central, where she was coached by her mom Liz, Hanser helped lead the Rams to a third place finish at the Class A state volleyball tournament her senior season. She was named first-team All-State as well. The Rams placed second at the state tournament her junior year.
“We are excited Abbie has come back home and we look forward to her success here at Rocky in the classroom and on the court,” Kelly said.
“She is an amazing person and player. She will bring a lot of experience to our already tough team. Abbie will give us another strong option in the middle.”
