What’s it like being on the SAU volleyball team?
“Being on the SAU volleyball team is honestly a once in a lifetime chance, and for that, I’m so grateful! It’s kind of like a sisterhood with us! We know how to push each other to be not only great players but also great individuals!”
What’s it like being a student-athlete?
“Being a student-athlete is quite difficult! Your time management has to be on a whole new level. For example, the volleyball team is traveling for weeks on end throughout the season, so I have to set aside time to knock out some homework wherever I get the chance. It might be on the bus, in the hotel, or at the gym! It all starts with time management for me.”
