Wyoming volleyball head coach Chad Callihan announced the hiring of Reese Plante as Director of Operations for the Cowgirls, with the former letter winner beginning her duties Monday morning.
“The support for this University is unmatched, and I’m thrilled to be a part of such an incredible program and athletic department,” Plante said. “I loved playing for Chad (Callihan) and Dan (Georgalas), and I have an immense amount of respect for them. It’s a great feeling knowing we have an existing relationship to build on.”
Plante, a native of Fort Collins was a four-year letter winner (2010-2013) for Carrie Yearty and Callihan. She earned an art degree from UW with a marketing communication minor in May of 2014. Plante was a four-time Academic All-MW and MW Scholar Athlete selection while wearing the Brown and Gold. She is fourth all-time with 440 total blocks and 447 sets played in a career. Additionally, she is sixth in Cowgirl history with a .288 career hitting percentage.
“I’m honored to be a part of this staff,” Plante added. “Being a student-athlete at Wyoming was a life-changing experience for me, and I can’t wait to contribute to that experience for current and future Cowgirls.”
After graduating, Plante traveled with the MW All-Star team to Europe during the summer of 2014. She has since been working as a graphic designer at Bright Agrotech and is married to former UW track and field athlete Joe Plante.
The 2017 Cowgirl season officially begins on August 25 in the UniWyo Sports Complex, when the Brown and Gold host the Rumble in the Rockies tournament.
