is an exceptional player and has a lot of power. “When she gets
in the weight room and improves her strength she will be even
better. She can block and plays great defense and is a great team
player.” - Coach Patrick

Morgan Veleke, Kamiakin High School
Veleke is a great passer and a very smart hitter. She may not
have the size of the other outsides but she knows how to hit
around a block and get the ball down. She also possesses a
great jump serve.

Ashley Miles Valley Christian High School
Miles is a great athlete with a very explosive jump and a high
reach. “We think Ashley is going to be a pretty exciting player
to watch. She may be a little behind in consistency and with
her defense but just like a couple of others we fully expect that
they will 'get it' quickly and find a way to get on the court and
contribute." - Coach Patrick

for the NWAACC Tournament 15 out of 18 years. He has been named Eastern Region
Coach of the Year five times (95, 97, 99, 00, 03), NWAACC Tournament Coach of the
Year (95), and AVCA JC/CC Western Region Coach of the Year twice (99, 02).

In 2000, coach Patrick reached the 400-win plateau. A season later, he recorded his
100th Eastern Region victory. In 2003, Patrick reached another milestone when he
earned his 500th career victory. His career mark of 610-318 (.659 winning percentage)
over 18 seasons, ranks among some of the countries top active coaches.

Over the past 12 years, CBC has established itself as one of the top JC Volleyball pro-
grams in the Northwest. CBC has placed at least fifth in the NWAACC Championships
nine out of the past 13 seasons.

During Coach Patrick’s legacy, 17 players have gone on to play at the four-year level.

                                           BA Education, Eastern New Mexico State University

                                           Coach Vladimiroff returns as Coach Patrick's head assistant for her eighth season. Vladimiroff
                                           helps with almost every aspect of running the CBC Volleyball program. Her ability to teach set-
                                           ters proper technique, leadership responsibilities, and court awareness has been a tremendous
                                           asset to the CBC Volleyball program. She has helped three setters move on to the four-year
                                           level. Vladimiroff also coaches club volleyball in the off-season.

                                           As a former standout player at CBC from 1994-1995, Coach Vladimiroff broke and still holds
                                           some CBC Volleyball records (see Stacey Estlund). She helped lead the Hawks to an NWAACC
                                           Championship (95), was named 1st Team All-NWAACC Tournament (95), and Honorable
                                           Mention All-American (95). She still holds the career assists record at CBC totaling 2,659.
                                           Later, she attended Eastern New Mexico University (96-98), where she was named 1st Team
                                           All-Conference and broke the record for assists in a season.

                                           After working as the CBC Fitness Center Coordinator for six years, Coach Vladimiroff recently
                                           became an instructor in the PE and Health department. Stacey and husband Brian, have a
                                           son named Parker.

The Tri-Cities of Southeastern Washington state encompass-
es the three municipalities of Pasco, Kennewick, and Rich-
land. Area population is about 225,000. Boasting nearly
300 days of sunshine, the Tri-Cities weather is comparable
to many Sunbelt cities. Average annual rainfall is about 7
inches. With early springs and late falls, the Tri-Cities climate
is the best-kept secret on the West Coast.

On the historic Lewis & Clark Trail, the Tri-Cities span the
confluence of the Columbia, Snake, and Yakima Rivers. The
area is an ideal spot for water sports and boating, fishing,
water skiing, and swimming opportunities abound during all
seasons. Snow skiing, hiking, hunting, and camping are all
popular and located nearby.

Professional baseball and hockey teams call the Tri-Cities
home and the Toyota Center hosts events and concerts.
