Freshman volleyball player stoked

Meet freshman exercise science and health promotion major Lindsay Martin, the new addition to the Cabrini women’s volleyball team.

Coming from Torrance, Calif., Martin decided Cabrini College was the best school for her. “I wanted a small Catholic College on the East Coast and Cabrini was it,” Martin said.

Martin has been playing volleyball since fourth grade. She tried playing baseball for the sheer love of the sport, but stuck with volleyball instead.

As an all-around athletic and academically conscious student she won awards such as the Black and Gold Award in high school. The Black and Gold award is given to the athlete and student who inspires and represents Bishop Montgomery High School. Martin also received the Captains Award her junior year.

Coach Tricia Arnold and assistant coach Lou Becht pursued Martin. They contacted her on their visit to California. As part of the trip they recruited players to attend Cabrini.

“I’m really having a good time. I love the team, coaches are good, it’s fun, I like it,” Martin said. When answering how the adjustment to NCAA Divison III playing was, she said, “It’s actually a lot more intense then I thought it would be. I thought it would be a little more laid back since it is Division III, but it’s very intense and keeps me going.”

Martin’s playing number is four and her position is outside. Her favorite position on the volleyball court is the right side, opposite setter. She feels that because the position is a sneaky one, people do not expect a kill or hit from there. “Then once I do get out to make the kill or make a good play it comes out of nowhere” Martin said.

As far as weaknesses go, Martin described the team as having no evident weaknesses. She went along to say, “I think we are just going to continue to get better as the season goes on.”

A couple of team dynamics Martin values are teamwork and motivation. “Working together is probably the most important thing. If the team works together and they get along on the court, then they play better and will know each other. If everyone is motivated to play their best, then the team will do their best. It’s pretty much all in the mind.”

The volleyball team is victorious with an 8-3 lead so far this semester. Martin said, “I’m really excited. I can’t wait for the rest of the season.”
