BILLINGS — Laurel setter Sophia Timm has signed a letter of intent to play volleyball at Dickinson State (North Dakota) University.

Timm averaged 6.63 assists and 2.25 digs per set last season, and was named to the Class A all-state team.

“Sophia is a great addition to the program,” DSU coach Jennifer Willis said in an email to The Billings Gazette and 406mtsports.com. “She is quick, agile and has great court awareness. Sophia is extremely coachable and very talented both on and off the court. She is a tremendous student athlete and person, and we are very excited/honored she chose Dickinson State as the next steps in her athletic and academic careers.”

The Blue Hawks finished their fall season 3-4 overall and 3-3 in the North Star Athletic Association. They’ll wrap up their season in the spring.

DSU currently has four other Montanans on its roster: Karlie Cleveland from Billings West; Jenna Swope of Miles City; Bailey Pearcy of Glendive; and Cassidy Larson of Sidney.
