The women’s athletes have to be mentally and physically sharp. The game takes teamwork more than any other sport I know. Jasmine Terry and Shelby Crncic took time out of their day to sit down and tell me about playing the game and learning to play together. One of the biggest challenges that they faced was bonding with other young ladies who were from different backgrounds, personalities, and places that they were used to. Team work is essential t winning in volley ball according to both players and I was glad that they teamed up to give me an interview.
