“This season was unlike any other season for me. I played most of the season in a different position than I’m used to — outside back. While I love playing in my usual position as wing, I’m happy to have been able to help the team in a new way!”

Cassie has been playing outside hitter for us for the last three seasons and has had an impact in our offense. This season she has done a great job of adding her voice on the court during games and in our practices which has been good to see. Communication skills in the sport of volleyball is very important, whether it’s calling the ball, encouragement, accountability and strategy. Cassie has owned in on her communication this season and it has elevated her play. She overall finished in the top three with Kills per Set and finished 6th in Kills in our conference. We have some talented hitters in this conference and Cassie is right up there and I was happy she was awarded 2nd-team All-SCAC,” said Coach Trautmann. 

“I am very honored to have been awarded onto the second team SCAC volleyball team. I put in a lot of work before the season in the gym and on the court and was ready to work just as hard with my team during the season. We had a very young team but I think we were able to cultivate a great dynamic by the end of the season and I can’t wait to see what we have in store next year with our coach,” said Dyoub.
