2-time State Tourney MVP to play volleyball at ASC
ALAMOSA, Colo.— Adams State College volleyball coach Lindy Mortensen has announced that Hoehne High School senior Megan Hiss has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Grizzlies starting this fall. Hiss, named the most valuable player at the 2007 state tournament by both the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News, has helped lead the Farmers to Class 2A state titles in each of the last two years.
The Post also named here as the MVP of the 2006 tournament.
The 5-foot-11 middle hitter has been a 4-year starter for the Kathy Neve coached Farmers and was named as the News’ Class 2A Player of the Year as a junior in 2006 when Hoehne finished the year 29-2 before going 30-1 last season. She also earned all-area recognition as a sophomore in 2005 and was an honorable mention all-conference player as a freshman in 2004.
“We had been interested in Megan since seeing her play a junior. She is left-handed, athletic and 5-11. Although she has played the middle hitter in high school, she could also be a very good right side hitter being left-handed and strong on the block,” Mortensen said.
Also a starting post player on the Farmers’ basketball team for the past three years, Hiss is a tremendous student as well and holds a 4.0 GPA while earning a wide variety of academic awards.
“Not only is Megan a good volleyball player, she maintains a 4.0 GPA and is a very good person. She will be a nice asset to our team,” Mortensen said.
The Farmer volleyball squad has qualified for regionals in three of the last five years and has posted a stellar 100-11 record during her 4-year career.
Hiss, who signed during the early signing period in the fall, is Mortensen’s first recruit of the 2007-08 year. She will join a Grizzly squad that returns two All-Southwest Region players from the 2007 team that advanced to the semifinals of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Tournament.
