MISSOULA — Casey Stites, a 5-foot-9 setter from Bozeman, will join the Montana volleyball program and arrive in January as an early enrollee.
The Grizzlies also signed Olivia Bradley, a 6-foot-1 middle blocker from Nampa, Idaho, to a national letter of intent.
Both will be freshmen in the fall in coach Allison Lawrence's second season.
Stites will graduate early from Bozeman High and enroll at Montana at the start of the spring semester. The Griz begin offseason training in February. The situation provides Stites a head start and gives her extra preparation time with her new teammates that she wouldn't have gotten had she followed the typical schedule and arrived in August.
