GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The North Dakota Volleyball team has added former Montana State Middle Blocker Kaycee O'Dell to their roster for the fall 2023 season.

She spent the last four years in Bozeman, appearing in 32 matches with 86 sets played over 4 seasons. O'Dell recorded 76 blocks over her four years as a Bobcat with a career high 39 in 2022. In addition, she racked up 76 kills and hit .194 in her career with 30 of her kills coming as a senior in 2022. O'Dell has surpassed the .300 Hitting efficiency mark 9 times as an attacker during her career. 

Coach Jesse Tupac was elated about the addition, saying, "we are incredibly excited to announce the addition of Kaycee to our program!  She brings 4 years of quality Division 1 experience having played previously at former Big Sky rival Montana State.  Kaycee will be a handful for our Summit League opponents, having the ability to score both in front of and behind the setter offensively; while also bringing an impressive skillset and quickness as a blocker.  Most importantly, she is a one of a kind person and teammate, and will enhance our team as much off the court as she does on the court."

O'Dell is originally from Glendale, Arizona, where she led Cactus High School to a #2 ranking in AZ HS class 4A and a Semi-Final State Championship appearance.
