Missoulians love all Griz athletes, but there is something special when one of our own joins the ranks of a Griz sports team. Most of the time these athletes have already made a name for themselves through their success in high school. Two Sentinel High School seniors are prime example of this...

Congratulations to Elsa Godwin and Sarina Moreno for joining the UM Griz volleyball team next season!

Elsa was Montana's 2017 Gatorade Player of the Year and is a three-time all-state selection. Sarina was also a three-time all-state libero for Sentinel and both girls played a big role in helping the Spartans win three conference championships and back-to-back state title!

Back in the day I used to coach for the Montana Volleyball Academy (MVA), where both girls played club, and it's so fun to see how hard these two have worked to get to where they are today. It's awesome to see that their dedication to the sport paid off! Can't wait to see Elsa and Sarina kill it at UM! #GoGriz
