Q: How long have you been playing volleyball?

A: It’s hard. Having to have practice until five or six and then doing homework, but you get used to it after a while and get a handle on everything.

Q: What is the most challenging part about playing volleyball?
A: Not touching the net because with my position(outside hitter), I’m always at the net. So I just try to avoid touching the net.

Q: What struggles have you faced as a volleyball player?
A: In general you have to remember your rotations because if you’re not where you’re supposed to be, the other team can receive a point. Also positioning because depending on where the ball is and it’s angle, you need to be at a certain place.

A: I haven’t thought that far ahead, I’m really just thinking about our upcoming tournament on Feb. 24.
