RAPID CITY --- South Dakota School of Mines volleyball head coach Tiffany Mastin is pleased to announce the recent signing of Cathene Malin as the newest addition to the Lady Hardrocker volleyball program for the 2009 season.
Malin is a 5-foot-10-inch outside hitter from Hudson, Wis., that played her high school volleyball for the Hudson High School Raiders. She was also a club volleyball standout, honing her skills for the NOMA Stars 18-1 squad in Wisconsin.
“Cathene is a player with a good build and excellent volleyball form,” Mastin said. “She has great game skills and has tremendous volleyball fundamentals. Her personality is the type where she wants to excel on and off the court and she will continue to improve and get better as she matures.”
After her senior season at the high school level, Malin was an all conference second-team selection, earned her team’s Offensive Player of the Year Award and received academic all-conference honors.
“Cathene is a tall kid with good arm swing. She blocks well and she moves well,” Mastin said. “I’m sure it will take some time to acclimate her to the college game, but she’s driven and willing to learn. She has a high ceiling. There is no telling where we can take her or where she can take us.”
