Montana State first-year volleyball coach Kyle Weindel has announced the transfer of Washington State outside hitter Zoe Gogan. Gogan will be eligible to play for the Bobcats this fall.
?We are really excited to add Zoe to the roster for 2012,? Weindel said. ?She is the type of player that can affect the outcome of a match and game plans of opponents based on her size, athleticism, and ability to score points. We are expecting Zoe to have an immediate impact both in practice and in matches.?
As a 6-foot-2 freshman from of Fall City, Wash., she played in five matches for the Cougars, recording three blocks.
Gogan signed with Washington State after an outstanding prep career at Mount Si High School. A three-year letterwinner, she was a two-time KingCo 3A/2A Most Valuable Player and was a two-time all-state pick, as well. As a senior, Gogan led the Wildcats to a sixth place finish at the 3A state tournament, where she garnered her second consecutive all-state tournament team accolade.
During her career at Mount Si, she was selected Seattle Times Player of the Week twice and SnoValley Star Player of the Week three times. In addition, Gogan was named to the 2010 Seattle Times All-Area team and was selected to play in the all-state matches.
She is the daughter of Kevin and Heather Gogan. Her father retired from the NFL after 14 seasons as a guard with the Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins and San Diego Chargers. She has two sisters and one brother and is an honor roll student.
