“… When I went for my tour I fell in love with the campus and my freshman year of high school I went to their gym and watched them play. I just always wanted to play college since I started volleyball and I knew UPike would be the best place for me.”
“… Freshman was my first time ever playing and it was Coach Blevins first time ever coaching so we both taught and learned from each other Over the years. I loved being a VolleyDawg I have a lot of memories with all the girls. I will always miss being a VolleyDawg but I’m excited for what my future has.”
“… I want to thank Coach Kayla Vanhoose for everything she has done for me and making this happen for me. I want to thank Coach Blevins for a good 4 years of high school volleyball and everything she’s taught me. I want to thank My mom for always being my biggest fan and always pushing me to be better.”
“ I want to be an RN.”
