Angela Ding, a freshman, joined the Emerson Volleyball team earlier this year. She plays a defensive position and subs in for those that couldn’t make it to the game.

¨My position is a defense player, so I can sub in for for anybody on the court. And I usually sub in for the outside-front. In outside-front I do most of the hitting,¨

Ding had been considering joining volleyball before and this year she finally joined, and shared why.¨

I joined volleyball because I was always interested in the sport and I never tried it out.”

— Angela Ding

¨I joined volleyball because I was always interested in the sport and I never tried it out.I wanted to do something during the fall and my friends were also doing it. They encouraged me to join the team.¨

Like any other person who starts a sport, Angela experienced difficulties and has made progress.

¨I think I’ve made a lot of progress because it was my first year playing, so I didn’t have much experience and couldn’t do much at first. As I went to practice more, I could set better, pass the ball, and hit a target.¨

Because of her steady improvements, she was able to play more and more games.

¨Since I was new, I didn’t play a lot of the games, and so when I did play, I was so nervous I would mess up. When I was on the court more my skills became better and I became more confident.¨

Angela stated one of her favorite moments while playing volleyball.

¨I think my favorite moment was when we practiced hitting because it was something I was more confident in. Compared to serving and passing and setting, you had to get it over the net instead of passing it to someone else.¨
