DILLON — Fort Collins, Colorado, volleyball player KayLee Kopp has signed an NAIA National Letter of Intent to play for the University of Montana Western.
Western coach Katie Lovett announced the signing Tuesday evening.
Kopp, a 5-foot-9 outside hitter, is Lovett’s first recruit of the 2019 signing period.
“I am excited about KayLee joining our team next fall,” Lovett said. “She is exactly what we are looking for to build this program.”
Kopp is a three-year varsity player and team captain for the 2018 class 5A Region 11 Champions. She helped lead Rocky Mountain High School to two state tournament appearances, and two Les Schwab tire Centers Academic Team Championship awards. She has over 300 kills and a career hitting percentage of .217.
“She has a lot of versatility and can step into a few different roles right away,” Lovett said. “KayLee has great ball control and sees the court really well.”
Kopp is a member of the National Honor Society, National Tech Honors Society, and National Society of High School Scholars. She is a two-time Academic All-State first-team selection and will graduate from Rocky Mountain High School in the spring of 2019. Kopp, the daughter of Jason and Angie Kopp, plans on majoring in education at Montana Western.
