“… During my visit, I loved how everyone knew everyone there and was very friendly towards each other and myself. I have friends that I already know there and they were very helpful in showing me around. I have my major I want to pursue in there along with nice dorms and an overall very nice campus. Also, I have been coached before by the head coach at Alice Lloyd and I have a great relationship with her already.”
“… Coach Blevins has kept me motivated and on task all throughout high school. She has always seen the potential in me and has given me great opportunities since my freshman year. She has taught me how to discipline myself to be a better player not only for me but for my teammates as well.”
“… Club ball really helped me increase my level of play. Having new coaches and teammates allowed me to see where I really am best at and how well I play against other competition. Club Tournaments that I have played in have given me the opportunity to play against better teams than I see during high school season, so it’s been good to see how I play up to a new level.”
“… My parents for always being a constant support system and funding me for all of my trips and other expenses that come along with a sport. My teammates and coaches for helping me become the player I am today, and most important God for giving me opportunities to play a sport that I love at the collegiate level.”
Lawrence Co. Volleyball Head Coach Autumn Blevins
“… TK is the type of player every coach dreams of having on their team. She is positive, competitive, dedicated, and such a hard worker. TK and her family supported our program tremendously through the years. Although they will be missed, I know TK will make a positive impact on the court and in the classroom at Alice Lloyd just as she has done here. We are so proud of her commitment to continuing her athletic and academic career.”
