BILLINGS – Rocky Mountain College volleyball head coach Yang Yang announced Wednesday that Bailey King has signed a letter of intent. From Billings, the 6-foot-3 middle hitter will join the Battlin' Bears for the 2020 season.
"Bailey is the real deal. She is a good student and a very versatile player who puts up a big block and can play different positions on the front row," said Yang. "I have followed her through high school and on club teams and the improvements she has made these past two years have been amazing."
Currently a senior at Billings Senior High School, King lettered in volleyball for two years and basketball for three years. She earned academic all-state honors during her sophomore and junior years for both sports.
"It's very exciting that Bailey has chosen to continue playing volleyball at Rocky. Her athleticism, height, coachability, and potential are great assets to the program," said former Billings Senior High School volleyball coach, Sue Dvorak. "Her block is intimidating and her offense is smart. I look forward to watching her finish her senior year and to continue to play at Rocky."
King will pursue a degree in biology at Rocky Mountain College.
"I chose Rocky Mountain College because of the student-teacher ratio, how good the volleyball program is, and the academics," said King. "It's also a bonus being in town with all my family and watching my little siblings and nieces and nephews grow."
