Loosbrock to stay close to home, signs with Grizzly volleyball squad
ALAMOSA, Colo.— Adams State College volleyball coach Lindy Mortensen has announced that Alamosa native Laura Loosbrock has signed a national letter of intent to continue her educational and volleyball careers with the Grizzlies, starting in the fall of 2010.
Loosbrock, a 6-foot outside hitter who signed during the early commitment period, was an honorable mention all-state pick by both the Denver Post and Max Preps for her play and captaincy of the Alamosa High School Mean Moose, coached by Amy Ortega. She also earned First Team All-South Central League honors for the second straight season after picking up second team honors as a sophomore in 2007.
Loosbrock, who also saw time at middle hitter position for the Mean Moose, paced the squad in kills, hitting percentage and aces. She also plays for the top level squad of the Colorado Juniors Club based in Colorado Springs and has played with and against some of the best talent in the country while finishing in the top third of the country at the junior Olympic level. Her squad has finished amongst the top four at three different national championship qualifiers this season.
Loosbrock, who is the daughter of Ericha and Rich Loosbrock, an ASC history professor and Faculty and Athletic Representative, is also an excellent student and has been named to the academic all-conference squad after each of the last three high school volleyball seasons. She ranks amongst the top 10 seniors at AHS and has been taking all honors and advance placement courses since her freshman year and is serving as the president of the school’s National Honor Society chapter.
Loosbrock is undecided upon the major she will pursue at ASC.
"We are excited to have Laura join our program. She has done extremely well at Alamosa High School and has dedicated herself to playing club ball,” Mortensen said.
“She has experience at a variety of positions and will push for playing time as a freshman. She is a great student and a very driven individual."
