"Zy is determined to be the best at what she does," says Coach Wall. Henderson, also a Dean's list student, played volleyball last year for the first time. She is also on the Salem Basketball Team.  

In her first year playing Volleyball, she worked her way to a Great South All-Conference Selection.  "It wouldn't surprise me if she ends up in the number 1 spot by the end of the season," Coach Wall stated. "She works hard and smart." 

Henderson said, "I am very excited to see my hard work paying it off it is certain that I wouldn't have reached my level of play today without my coach and teammates pushing me. I am very honored!"
