Tumwater volleyball player signs with D-1 school

Tumwater middle blocker Cara Olden signed to play for Division I Portland State, as announced by the university.

The two-time first-team all-EvCo pick helped the Thunderbirds win the Class 2A state title in 2008 and a runner-up finish in ’07.

Portland State won the Big Sky Conference regular-season title last fall, and advanced to the NCAA Division I tournament in 2008.
