Former Team Member - Theresa Batista
My name is Theresa Batista, I am a sophomore this year and a returning player for Southwestern Volleyball Team. I am looking forward to this season because I think this team has amazing potential and I believe we can go far. It is amazing how much better I have gotten because of the help of Coach Rock and Assistant Coach Sarah.
Being a 5’10’’ middle blocker I feel the drive to better my skill and my speed to face all of my opponents. After I finish here at Southwestern, I plan on transferring to a university to continue playing volleyball, where I hope to take everything I’ve learned and reach the height of my potential. It is also in my future plans and goals to join the United States Navy. We are going to have a great season!
Former Team Member - Erryn Smith
I am from La Mesa and graduated from Grossmont High School where I had some of the worst memories playing volleyball. I didn’t know that there could be a volleyball program so amazing like the one here at Southwestern. Angela Rock and Sarah Lewis have been the best coaches I have ever had and it is amazing how much better I have gotten, in the course of just a few months, because of them. They have brought my love for volleyball back.
I am majoring in Kinesiology and I plan to transfer to a four year university where I can continue to play volleyball. Playing volleyball here at Southwestern has taught me to be a leader and to never give up, even if it is the smallest thing. I know we will have an amazing season! Go Hard or Go Home Lady Jags!
