LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming head volleyball coach Susan Judge has announced the remainder of her 1999 recruiting class with the signing of a student-athlete to a national letter of intent to attend the University of Wyoming next fall.
Jansen Siplon, 6'1", middle blocker/outside hitter, Casper, Wyo.:
A three-year letterwinner at Kelly Walsh High School. She earned All-Conference and All-State honors her senior year. She was also a North/South All-Star selection in the same season. As a junior, she helped lead her team to the 4A Regional Championship and a third place finish at the State tournament. As a three-year letterwinner in basketball, she was a USA Junior National Selection and a WNBA Sportsmanship Award winner. An excellent student, Jansen is a member of the National Honor Society. She was coached in high school by Janet Ragan. Jansen is the daughter of Robert and Linda Siplon. Siplon chose Wyoming over several schools including the University of Northern Colorado.
"We are very excited that Jansen Siplon, a Wyoming native, is joining the Cowgirl program. She will add a lot of versatility with her athleticism. Her destiny will most likely be at the middle position, but we will know more when she comes in and trains with the team. She is very strong academically, and has high goals for herself, which will translate into a high standard of play on the court. Her intelligence should help her adjust to the college game quickly. We would like to continue building our program around a nucleus of Wyoming athletes. Jansen is a bright young lady, she will add to the prosperity of our future and has a good career in front of her."
Siplon is the final student-athlete to sign a letter of intent for the Cowgirls this season. The other signees include Michele Keller (6-0, Hyannis, Neb.), Aynsley Laluk (6-0, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada), and Brooke Lowry (5-9, Paradise Valley, Ariz.).
