Feature Athlete: Jackie Harvey
The Logger volleyball team took to the road over the previous weekend, winning matches against both the Linfield Wildcats and Willamette Bearcats in consecutive days. The team is improving, but perhaps even more noticeable has been the emergence of freshmen outside hitter Jackie Harvey (Santa Barbara, CA). In the first game against Linfield, Harvey led the team in kills with 12 while hitting an impressive .356 on the court. She also contributed defensively with 7 digs. The following day against Willamette, Harvey added 6 kills along with 6 more digs. A couple weeks into conference play, the Logger volleyball team seems to be close to hitting full stride thanks to an added emphasis on consistency.
When asked about the current team dynamic and chemistry, Harvey replied with the following statement, “I love playing with all of the girls on the team because everyone brings a huge amount of energy to the court, which in turn brings a high level of intensity to the matches. It makes playing in the games very fun as well. Everyone is extremely supportive on the court which makes it, especially as a freshman, really easy to adjust to playing on a new, college level team. These last couple weeks of conference play have shown us how much talent our team has but also the things we still need to work on in order to continue to compete at a national level.”
The Loggers are really buying into this unified philosophy and impressive commitments have been made in hopes of leading them deep into conference play and beyond.
