Why did you choose Shenandoah? I chose Shenandoah because it has a small school atmosphere where I would be able to strive in the classroom and also get to play the sport that I love.
Favorite Class and Professor: My favorite class so far at Shenandoah has been Global Context of Christian Leadership with Dr. Justin Allen.
What do you like most about playing sports at SU? I like that I am a part of a team that has improved our record and our ODAC seeding every year since my class has arrived at SU and I am excited to hopefully see this growth and improvement continue during my senior season!
Favorite thing to do in Winchester: I love going downtown to the walking mall and trying all of the different restaurants that Winchester has to offer.
Favorite SU Athletics Memory: My favorite volleyball memory was going to the Gettysburg Tournament at the start of my freshman year and getting the opportunity to play a prominent role in helping us win 3 of our first 4 matches of the season!
What has playing athletics at SU meant to you? Playing athletics as SU has given me the opportunity to continue to play the sport that I love but also grow as a person and a leader through volleyball and the SU community.
