Senior Spotlight: Kassie Freyermuth

Monday, September 29, 2014

1. What made you choose Westminster?
When I visited Westminster I fell in love with the beautiful campus, and having the opportunity to play volleyball as well as get a good education just adds to the beauty.

2.  What has been the greatest part of your collegiate career this far?
I think one of the best parts of my collegiate career is all of the wonderful people I have met. Westminster is such a friendly place and the friendships I have made here I will cherish for life.

3.  What is your favorite volleyball moment of all-time?
I am going to take this back to high-school and say winning WIPIALS and getting second in the state my sophomore year. Also, a wonderful memory I have is playing against the Belize junior national team this past summer in Belize.

4.  Do you have any talents or hobbies?
Volleyball is life, but I do enjoy playing racquetball and looking at pictures of dogs.

5.  What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation I hope to get a job as a teacher in either early childhood education or special education. I also wouldn't mind coaching volleyball.

6.  What advice do you have for your underclassmen teammates?
My advice for the underclassmen would be to cherish every moment and play hard because it truly goes by fast. But mostly, have fun and remember why you started playing!
