Natalie Little Meets Changes And Challenges Head On
“My first year at Brock was definitely challenging,” said Little. “The academic requirements along with the rigorous varsity volleyball schedule, left me with very little free time. However with the success of the team in securing a silver medal in Provincial final four and a trip to Nationals certainly made it worth the effort.”
Little, who played club volleyball with the Chatham Ballhawks, was a walk on with the Badgers, making the team out of tryouts. She has met each challenge faced.
“The adjustment from my high school schedule with school and sports to the work load my university courses had, balanced with the time required for volleyball, made for a challenging first year,” Little explained.
“Being a first year player comes with its own challenges, adjusting to the level and speed of the game from club and high school was a huge learning curve. Every goal I have will not be easy and there will be times I doubt myself but I hope I have what it takes physically and skill wise, as well as my love of the game to continue to succeed.”
With the most difficult year behind her, Natalie Little is looking forward to getting back to school and sport next season.
“My personal goals for next year are to continue to improve physical and mentally on and off the court as well as in the classroom. Our team has set the goal to work towards a return trip to nationals.”
