What Lies Ahead
By: Gabe Taylor
Katherine Douglas (KD) hasn't been thrown off by the outcome of last season on the volleyball court. With an entire summer in front of her, Douglas – and her teammates - will prepare to make another push at the WCC Tournament title. As a redshirt-sophomore, Douglas recorded 298 kills, with 23 coming against South Dakota. The California native caught up with SantaClaraBroncos.com (SCB) to reflect on this past season, and to discuss her plans for the summer.
SCB: What moment were you most proud of this past season?
SCB: The team finished 11-16 last season. What could've gone better?
KD: While our record last season was not ideal, I think that our team did a great job of working through injuries and practicing hard everyday to improve. What's important now is that we can learn from our past seasons, and focus on next season.
SCB: What are you going to work on most for next season?
KD: In preparing for next season, our team will be most focused on executing the new systems we started working on in spring.
SCB: What are your expectations going into the season for yourself and for the team?
SCB: What are your plans for the summer? Is there one thing that you're most excited for?
If I had to choose one thing I'm most excited for, it would be to meet up with the Hawaiian family I usually stay with every summer in Hawaii, and get in touch with some of my friends from Hawaii that I haven't seen in a while.
