The Penn State Women's Volleyball Booster Club held its annual post-season banquet this afternoon. Highlighting the event were the announcements of two annual awards: the Coach's Award, given to the player who made the most improvement during the season, went to Simone Lee, (who couldn't be in attendance because she is playing professionally in Italy, replacing Megan Easy, who some of you may have heard of). The Pops Award, which Coach Rose described as going to a player who did all the things not listed on their resume, went to Haleigh Washington. Two great players who will be missed.
Thanks for the nice report, nyline. But....can you please pass along some gossip from the banquet?!
There really wasn't anything else to report. The coaches and team know they will have to work hard next season, and the current players will need to lead the incoming players and teach them about the work ethic and commitment needed to play at Penn State. There was no word on Salima's replacement, and no word on transfers. I wish I had something, but I don't.
Working until 2 AM on the banquet because people completely ignored deadlines, when I got the answer if any new freshmen were attending, I was too busy to ask the player's name who wasn't attending the banquet and jumped on to the next task. He name wasn't any of my business anyhow, and never having seen her play, it wouldn't mean much.
