Class of 2017 Spotlight - Rachel Roberts

Class of 2017 Spotlight - Rachel Roberts

WINCHESTER, Va. - We continue our look at the Class of 2017 by meeting volleyball standout Rachel Roberts.

Major: Exercise Science Major with minors in Psychology and Faith Seeking Justice 

Sport Played: Volleyball 

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. 

Post-Graduate Plans: I plan to attend graduate school and study Pediatric Occupational Therapy! 

Nobody knows that I... was a part of three volleyball state championship teams in high school.
