Sierra Trost is a 5-foot-8 setter who competed at Blaine High School.

Minnesota, Crookston Head Volleyball Coach Lee Anderson has announced the signing of Sierra Trost of Ham Lake, Minn., to a National Letter of Intent to begin playing for the Golden Eagle volleyball team beginning in the fall of 2013.

All signees are contingent upon admission to UMC and compliance with NCAA rules, including certification by the NCAA Eligibility Center.

Trost is a 5-foot-8 setter who competed at Blaine High School. She was an All-Northwest Suburban Conference Honorable Mention pick as a senior for the Bengals. Trost helped lead her high school team to a 31-2 mark and a berth in the 2012 Minnesota State Volleyball Tournament where they lost to fellow Golden Eagle Volleyball signee Erin Schwarz' Eden Prairie High School team in the semi-finals. In addition to competing at Blaine High School, Trost plays for the Northern Lights Volleyball club. Last season her squad won first place at the Presidents' Day tournament in Omaha, Neb.

“Sierra is a very talented setter,” Anderson said. “She is extremely athletic and has a great court demeanor. I foresee her playing a large role in the future success of the Golden Eagle volleyball program.”

Trost was born Sept. 7, 1994. She is daughter of Cherry Windwood of Ham Lake, Minn., and Craig Trost of St. Paul, Minn. Trost intends to major in health sciences at UMC.
