Hi I'm Allison Rose and I'm a senior Middle Blocker and Opposite.
The St. Mary's University volleyball team had quite the interesting weekend. With the arrival of Hurricane Harvey, the Lady Rattlers were unable to compete in their first scrimmage of the season against cross-town, Division III rival, Trinity University. Hurricane Harvey is currently an active tropical cyclone that recently made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane on Friday night. The St.MU/Trinity scrimmage has been rescheduled to Wednesday, August 30th at 5:30 pm @ Trinity University.
In addition, the Lady Rattlers will be working hard this upcoming week to prepare for their preseason volleyball games! In the next two weeks, The Lady Rattlers will be competing in 12 matches against Mary-Hardin Baylor, Trinity University, University of Texas-Permian Basin, West Texas A&M, St. Thomas University, Florida National University, and several others to prepare for conference season, which begins September 21st against St. Edwards University.
Hi my name is Shelby Mudd. I am a freshman setter from Indianapolis, Indiana here at st Marys and I'm so excited for this season and can't wait to make memories with all my teammates. This week has been pretty hectic with school starting. Right now I'm trying to find a groove between starting my classes and my volleyball schedule. And being a Biology major school can give a pretty heavy load. But between meeting all my teachers and volleyball everything has been amazing. I love all my professors so far and can't wait to get to know them. This pass Thursday we had media day which was so fun, I didn't really know what to expect from it but all I know is my introduction video is very awkward. But thats being a freshman for you, lots of awkward moments (haha). Friday practice was so fun we got to scrimmage a lot because we are scrimmaging UTSA on Monday which is so very exciting. Also it was Boo Boo’s birthday which was awesome because we got cupcakes at the end of practice woo. Then after that coach gave us the weekend off which has been so nice because we went grocery shopping, which was really weird doing without my parents. Overall though Rattler volleyball had a great week and many more to come!
Hi everyone! My name is Channing Hankins, I am a junior outside hitter. This week was
our first week of preseason and two-a- days! The team has worked really hard and we have
shown a lot of progress already. This year, we have 19 girls on the team which is the biggest
team I’ve ever played on but we are all already getting along really well and getting to know
each other. We have had a couple of really fun days of team bonding which has been great to
hang out with everyone outside of volleyball as well. School starts tomorrow for all of us and
we have 10 freshmen on the team so it’s a super exciting and new time for them! Today, the
preseason poll for the Heartland Conference came out and we were ranked sixth. The team is
super excited to show the conference what we have and prove everyone wrong! We all are
really looking forward to getting into season and start playing games, we hope to see all of our
fans out there! Our first home match of the year is Tuesday, September 19 th vs. Our Lady of The
