GREAT FALLS — The University of Providence Argos volleyball program capped off its 2019-20 signing class with the addition of junior transfer Sacha Legros, head coach Arunas Duda announced on Wednesday.

“Sacha completes our 2019 recruiting class and her commitment might be the exclamation point on an exciting recruiting class,” said Duda. “She is an excellent student, great teammate and will be a huge part of our positive culture at UP.”

Legros, a native of Verviers, Belgium, joins the Argos after spending her freshman and sophomore seasons at the College of Southern Idaho. As a freshman, she helped lead the Golden Eagles to a runner-up finish before securing the national championship title her sophomore season. During the Golden Eagles’ 2018 campaign, Legros tallied 281 digs, 27 serving aces and 48 kills. Prior to her time at Southern Idaho, Legros competed in Belgium, winning three Belgium National Championships with her club team. She was ranked in the top three during nearly all 15 of her trips to the Belgium National Championships.

“With a large group of freshmen entering the program this fall, we were still searching for another player with experience playing at a highly-competitive level that could help us get back to, and be successful at, the national tournament,” said Duda. “I know we hit a home run with Sacha, bringing in a player that has been trained by an excellent coach in Jim Cartisser at CSI, possesses the versatility to play different positions at the junior college national tournament, and has experience competing on a national stage as she helped lead the Golden Eagles to a national championship and a second-place finish over her two-year career.”

In the classroom, Legros was named to the Dean’s list her sophomore year and held a 3.85 GPA during her two years at Southern Idaho. She will pursue a degree in business while attending the University of Providence.
