Katie should get the iron-woman award! She always gives 100%, she plays hurt and always puts team before self. She is a great player to have here at Salem College. She really stepped up for us by playing middle (not her natural position) and she does a great job! She is passionate about volleyball and is working hard to make Salem Volleyball a success in our conference. It is wonderful watching her get better everyday and knowing that she has what it takes to lead our team in the future.
