LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming head volleyball coach Carrie Yerty announced one addition to this year's recruiting class with the signing of Tamara Kitic to attend UW beginning in the fall of 2010.
Kitic, who is from Nis, Serbia, is transferring in from Lee College and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
"Tamara is an experienced rightside player that can swing on either the right or left," said Yerty. "She was a very recognized player at the community college level, and will add experience and leadership to our Cowgirl squad. She is a tremendous server and strong blocker, along with being a great student and hard worker. We are very excited to have her."
Here is the signee:
Tamara Kitic, 6-4, Rightside Hitter, Nis, Serbia (Lee College):
