"Katelin comes highly recommended from some of our trusted friends," Sobolewski said. "She grew up in a basketball house hold and has always been around great coaches. Unfortunately her playing career at Northridge was cut short, but this allowed her to start transitioning into be a coach earlier than most. We are fortunate to have her in Pocatello."
