Had a nice chat with Vorster

March 20th, 2014

Sweet young woman

Said she hoped everyone knew that she was leaving because she was graduating and wanted to move on academically. Said she guessed she had always been more of a student than and athlete and the move will give her a chance to be closer to family and play with her sister, whom she considers her best friend.

Said she hopes to play 2 years and finsh her Master's in public health around the same time her eligibility is up. The program is 3-4 semesters.

She was excited about playing with her sister. They had played one year in high school and said it had always been a dream for them to do it, that it was going to be so much fun and was happy it worked out.

told her someone had suggested Shoji schedule Liberty for 2015. She said that would be crazy.

She appreciates all the kind words on the blog and all the kindness shown during her time at Hawaii, which she loves.

    44. Not that I think it's her but HH has been at the Beach for four years. If she graduates, she doesn't need a release.

    50. this is her second year at IVC. she didn't play indoor as a freshman but did play sand in 2012. played indoor 2013, playing sand in 2014. She'll need to get her AA before going to a four-year school. Pestolesi will see that it happens if that's what she wants.

    Another guess, Olivia Magill.


  4. haleiwacrossfitter:

    That's a great guess, Mauna. And a real possibility.

    Re: 45, what an announcement that would be. A 6'6" Libero. That'd be a first. Plus, she could practically attack from the backrow without jumping and be more effective than most attackers.

    If only! ^^ 😉

    the interesting thing about Olivia Magill is that her mother appears to be polynesian, so there might be a local connection with her. Further she is a 6'2" middle which will plug the hole left by the Vorster departure.


  8. mauna:

    well, we'll see. Olivia's mom is Tongan, she's not playing sand, 2014 roster is not up, she's not an AA but Arizona's best middle, and Daves Shoji and Rubio are really good friends.

    By the way, just read Emily Hartong had surgery for a torn labrum in her shoulder on the 9th. Just sharing VB info...

    59. yes, it was mentioned after she was seen at MVB in a sling.
