Volleyball Adds Two Transfers from Colorado
RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State head volleyball coach Bryan Bunn announced today the addition of two transfers from the University of Colorado to the Wolfpack program. Megan Cyr and Becah Fogle will both join the Pack in time for the 2010 season.
“It’s exciting to have two young ladies come in that have such a high level of experience playing in the Big 12,” said Bunn. “They will immediately impact our program, and will help us take a great step forward in getting this program going in the right direction."
Wolfpack assistant coach Stevie Mussie coached both players as a member of the Colorado coaching staff in 2008.
Cyr will come to Raleigh as a redshirt sophomore next season. A 6-0 setter from St. Andrews, Manitoba, Canada, she saw action in 23 matches this past year with 10 starts. Cyr recorded 211 assists, 64 digs, 20 kills, 15 total blocks and 12 service aces for the Buffaloes after redshirting the 2008 season. She was named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll twice.
During her prep career Cyr was tabbed 2007 Manitoba Player of the Year and was named to the All-Manitoba Team for both volleyball and basketball. She also won three consecutive Provisional AAAA titles with the Selkirk Royals Volleyball Club from 2005-07, and was named team MVP three times. A hotly recruited prospect, Cyr was courted by Penn State, Baylor, Syracuse, Washington State and Arizona.
“She was highly recruited out of high school and I had the opportunity to coach her at CU,” said Mussie. “She is a great leader and I think she will bring a lot of those qualities to our program at NC State.”
Fogle, a 5-11 outside hitter, will serve as a junior next year for the Wolfpack. She started all but one match last year, and served as the Buffaloes main offensive catalyst with 289 kills and 225 digs, both team bests. She also put up 25 total blocks, 16 service aces and 11 assists.
Fogle recorded 387 kills and 355 digs as a senior at Vista Ridge High School, leading the program to a 25-11 record and a district title. She was an all-state honorable mention selection by both Lone Star Volleyball and Texas Sports Writers.
“She is a great outside hitter,” said Mussie. “She’s come a long way since I coached her. She was one of the better attackers in the Big 12 and she’s evolved into a very good volleyball player.”
NC State will continue spring play this weekend at UNC Greensboro.
