Hard Work Drives Whitney Woods To The Top Of Her Game

Whitney WoodsThe date was November 25th, the location Las Vegas, Nevada. Amidst the celebration by the Hawai'i volleyball team and their fans and the consolation of the New Mexico State players by their teammates and parents, Whitney Woods sat alone quietly in the first row in the stands behind the Aggie bench staring off in the distance. Her team had just lost the WAC Tournament championship match to Hawai'i, one of three losses to the Final Four bound Wahine last season.

Losing is never any fun. Losing to Hawai'i in the championship match of the WAC Tournament is even less fun. For Woods, this loss was a little tougher to take. "I took it hard because I knew we were able to beat them. No doubt about it," said Woods. "There were just plays in the game where we let our guard down and let them get in our heads."

Nearly nine months later, Woods enters the 2010 season as one of three seniors on the Aggie volleyball team and was named to the WAC's preseason All-Conference team along with with her teammates Kelsey Brennan, Jennah DeVries and fellow senior Kayleigh Giddens.

The preseason All-Conference pick should come as no surprise to anyone that's watched Woods play the past two seasons, however, for Whitney the metamorphosis into an All-Conference right-side attacker didn't happen overnight.  Continue Reading This Post >>
