A little extra:

  • Samantha is a middle blocker.
  • Her favorite drill: She loves playing queen of the court and incorporating a strong offense, but also playing some back row defense. “As a middle we don’t play back row too often, and, for me, I love to play it any chance I get!”
  • In her spare time, Samantha likes going to the beach and relaxing.
  • Samantha’s favorite place in the world is Italy.  “It’s a gorgeous country! All of the architecture and history that you see just walking around in almost every city is jaw dropping. The people are so kind and welcoming. But my favorite part was definitely the food! You can’t beat authentic Italian cuisine!”

Samantha says:

“Be hungry! Turn any negative action into a positive. If one drill isn’t going your way, don’t get discouraged, but be persistent and ask for it again!”
Motivational quote:

Just Do It.
