SPEARFISH, S.D. – Black Hills State University women's volleyball head coach, Kristin Carmichael, has announced that Kate Raevsky has been named the new assistant coach of the Yellow Jackets.

"I am extremely grateful to be given this opportunity to be a part of the Yellow Jacket volleyball program and BHSU athletics as a whole," said Raevsky. "I am thrilled to be able to work with Coach Carmichael, and am so excited to get to know the talented and driven volleyball players here at BHSU."

Raevsky comes to BHSU from Middle Park High School, in Colorado, where she was the head volleyball coach for the past four years. She helped lead the team to four consecutive Frontier League Championships, and was named the Frontier League Coach of the Year three times. During her four years at Middle Park, Raevsky coached three Frontier League Player of the Years, while her team qualified for the state tournament for three consecutive years.

​​​​​​​Raevsky has also coached in the Middle Park Volleyball Club for the last five years. She has acted as the Club Recruiting Coordinator for two years.

As a player, Raevsky attended Fort Hays State. During the 2008 season, she was the starting libero for the Tigers, tallying 511 digs. She averaged 4.87 digs per set, which puts her number nine on the single season digs per set record at FHSU.

​​​​​​​Raevsky earned her Master's in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University Irvine.

"We are very excited to welcome Kate to the Yellow Jacket Volleyball family," said Coach Carmichael. "With her background in defense and setting, she will be assisting in all aspects of games and practices. She also brings several recruiting contacts from her club and high school coaching experiences. We look forward to working with Kate as we chase our team goals."

The Yellow Jackets are scheduled to open their season at the Tarleton State Tournament August 24-25.
