Assistant COACH:  Leah Beekman

Hello! This is my second year with RRIV and I am excited to be a part of the organization and watch the athletes grow throughout the year. I am originally from Eagan, MN where I played volleyball from the moment I could hold the ball! I played throughout all my school years and with various club teams in the Twin Cities, as a setter and DS, until college when I moved to Fargo to pursue a nursing career. In addition to being a nurse, I get to teach part time with nursing programs throughout the community. I continue to play competitive volleyball and just love the game all around. I am excited to be involved and see what this season brings.
