The Montana State University-Northern volleyball team is just two months away from the start of a brand new season. But head coach Bill Huebsch is still hard at work on the recruiting trail.
Huebsch recently announced the signing of 6-0 middle Mikayla Virostek to an NAIA national letter of intent. Virostek is the fifth MSU-N recruit in the 2014 recruiting class.
Virostek comes to Northern from Enchant, Alberta. She attended Vauxhall High School while playing three years of volleyball alongside two years of basketball. Throughout her volleyball career, she has won the 2A zone championships three straight years. As well, she has won one gold medal and two bronze medals in the 2A provincial championships.
Upon visiting MSU-N, Virostek felt an instant match when piecing together academics and athletics. Pursuing a degree of elementary education, Mikayla found MSU-N to be a perfect fit. While still being close to home she found that Northern is an exciting place to further her volleyball career. Being from a town of 200 people, Havre provides that small appeal. Mikayla said she is very excited to join the Skylights this coming season and looks forward to a wonderful experience, growing as a player and person under the guidance of Coach Huebsch.
Virostek is the daughter of Shane and Emely Virostek and has four siblings, Hailee, Rianne, Verne and Simon.
