What is your favorite athletic memory here at Shenandoah University?

When we beat Methodist in the 2011 USA South Conference Tournament. We were expected to lose and we shocked everyone with our intensity and ability to keep pushing until the end.
 

What is your favorite part about being an athlete at Shenandoah University?  

Being a part of a family on my team.  We're always there for one another and we always turn to our sisters on the team to help us through whatever problems we're facing at the time.
 
What are your plans after graduation?
I plan to take a few months off and then maybe go to veterinarian school.  Whatever I do, working with animals is a must.
 

What has being a student-athlete at Shenandoah University meant to you?

Being a part of the whole athletic body has been a privilege I will never forget.  It taught me how to mature as a person and as an athlete.  All of the long hours at practices and the work we put in molded us into better people.  I truly appreciate everyone in the athletic department that had a hand in making who I am today.
 

Sam's take…Emily was a consistent defensive specialist for the Hornets for her entire career. She had over 200 digs in each season of her college career along with helping her team into the quarterfinals of the ODAC this year. Emily shined both on and off the court as student athlete. Good luck Emily!
