Congratulations to Amber Messner, volleyball, who was selected as the Tiger of the Week.
Here are Amber’s accomplishments and how she has been an example of being a Tiger.
- Amber has led the way with 35 digs, 4 ace serves, and 43 serve receptions. Her play allowed our team to secure the conference title outright and have a perfect 5-0 conference record.
- Tenacity – Amber has a very competitive personality when it comes to the volleyball court. Being a defensive specialist, her job and she takes great pride in it, is to not let the ball touch the floor. She has taken on our opponents best hitters and done a great job digging their attacks. Besides playing defense, she is also extremely good at covering our hitters. I’ve seen Amber pick balls up off of the opponents block, which I’m sure they figured had scored, only to have it attacked at them again because Amber was able to keep the ball alive.
- Effort – Amber’s effort is highly contagious with the rest of the team and program. When others see the effort and desire she puts forth in any drill or competitive event, it only causes a chain reaction and her fellow teammates want to duplicate her effort.
