Junior volleyball player Lizzie Williams received the first player of the week award in her career. Williams has played for the Cabrini volleyball team for three years as a setter.
“Even though we have had a rough start with only a few wins, the beginning of our season is always the hardest,” Williams said. Williams never lost faith in her team. “We are definitely a contender to win the CSAC this year, but Neumann is going to be a tough game.”
Williams is from Newark, Del. where she has played volleyball since she was four years old. She described herself as an over-achiever and is very proud to receive this award.
Williams attended St. Mark’s High School in Del. where she played on the varsity team all four years. She was the first freshman in eight years to make the varsity volleyball team at her school.
Not only does Williams play volleyball but she is also a pre-med and biology major.
Along with receiving player of the week this year, last year she received honorable mention for the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) and Academic Award for the CSAC.
Williams is very vocal on the court and gets her team pumped up for every game.
“We just have to go out strong and we will succeed in the new conference, CSAC,” Williams said.
The volleyball team had a record of 16-8 last year and hopes to reach the record again. So far this year, their record consists of five wins and seven losses.
“Lizzie definitely deserves this award. She always strives for greatness and is a great attribute to the team,” junior Traci Beltz said.
