Sophie Miller Commits to Eastern Washington!

Todd Beamer’s returning Varsity setter  Sophie Miller verbally committed to the Eastern Washington Volleyball program to be their setter in 2013.  Sophie attended EWU’s volleyball camp and impressed the Eagle coaching staff with her intangibles and skill.  Eastern’s coaches scouted Sophie over the course of the club season and offered a full-ride athletic scholarship for Sophie to attend EWU.  We are very proud of Sophie, who has been very busy this summer attending numerous volleyball camps chasing her goal to play college volleyball.  Way to go Sophie!
