Canyon Ridge's Weston signs with CSI to stay local

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) The College of Southern Idaho volleyball team just won a national championship and now they're adding more local talent.

Canyon Ridge Riverhawk, Brooklyn Weston signed her national letter of intent to play NJCAA volleyball for the Golden Eagles Friday afternoon in front of family and teammates.

"I'm just really excited it means I get to be a part of a great team, and I get to go to a great college that's in a great location for me, and I'm just really excited!" Brooklyn explained.

The irony of her commitment is that her mom was a member of the 1998 CSI national championship team.

"I'm so excited and I hope I can make them win number 13," Brooklyn said.

Staying close to home was important to Brooklyn so she will be able to spend time with her young sisters and her family being able to watch her play.

"It's awesome we like having local kids who are local and can come in and contribute and help us maintain the tradition. Part of the tradition has always been having kids here from the local area," said CSI Head Coach Jim Cartisser.

What Brooklyn's most excited to learn from the coaches and grow as a player.

"Mainly training wise, building me up to what I can be, and seeing what the other girls are capable of, just being really excited for the potential that I have," Brooklyn said.

Her future coach Jim Cartisser has plans for her to make an immediate impact.

"I think she'll train some in the middle but ultimately I think I can see her moving mainly to the right side. I think she would do a terrific job there," Cartisser explained.

While in school she plans on studying dental hygiene.
