(Neb.) - Pair of EWC volleyball players ink with Chadron State
CHADRON – Commitments continue to come in for the Chadron State College volleyball team as head coach Natasha Marquis announced Monday that both Dakota Clough and Shelby Brewer, teammates at Eastern Wyoming College, will play for the Eagles this fall.
The former Lancers will join six others – Arielle Boone, Justine Ackie, Danielle Hundley, Shannon Durck, Shelby Austin and Allison Munk – who all previously signed National Letters of Intent.
Clough, a 5-foot-8 defensive specialist from Ogallala, averaged 5.32 digs a set last season for the Lancers and was named the NJCAA Region IX Libero of the Year, in addition to being named all-region and all-conference. She finished the season with 702 total digs and added 44 service aces.
For her career, she had a school record 1,284 digs and 61 aces.
“Dakota is a smart and skilled defensive player with excellent ball control,” Marquis said. “We are pleased to add her to the team and she fits in well with our philosophy.”
Clough, who was named Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska in 2011, had a solid prep career at Ogallala High School, helping the Indians win three consecutive district championships. Following her senior season, she was named all-conference and all-state honorable mention.
Brewer, a 5-6 setter from Big Horn, Wyo., operated a successful 6-2 offense at EWC. She handed out 617 set assists her sophomore year and added 219 digs, 30 aces and 19 kills.
“Shelby is a leader on the court and has confidently run an offense at the collegiate level,” Marquis said. “It is my hope that she brings some maturity and depth to our setting position.
Brewer had an outstanding high school career and played on six state championship teams. She was all-conference and all-state in volleyball and basketball as a junior and senior and was named the 2009 Sheridan County Volleyball Player of the Year.
