“Kiahlei is a versatile player who will be a great addition to our backcourt,” Associate head coach Dan Georgalas said. “Her ability to pass and defend will provide depth in an area that we struggled at sometimes last season.

“Being a local player, I know she will come in to our program with a blue collar work ethic and show pride in wearing the Brown and Gold. We look forward to the addition of her energy and ball control skills to our gym.”

She also had 288 digs (2.32 dps), which was third on the team. Yaste tallied 241 kills, 19 aces, 174 digs and 47 blocks in her first season with the Generals.

Kiahlei Yaste (Ky-lee Yay-ste) will become the fourth Cowgirl on the current team from The Centennial State. She is a 2016 graduate of University High School in Greeley, Colorado.
