Sport Highlight: Wendi is the program’s Captain for the 2019 season. Wendi is an amazing leader and respected by her teammates. She is starting in her first year as full time Varsity. Wendi committed to the weight room this past off-season and really strengthened her athletic abilities. She came up huge in last nights, 5 set thriller at Gateway, when she capped off the win for the Lancers with a HUGE stuff block.

Lancer Future Goal: “I can’t wait until the day that my family and I get the keys to my dream house that I paid for because of my success with the career that I love.  One day I hope to buy my mom a house in Mexico.”

Coaches Quote: “Wendi is exactly what a coach wants in their athletes.  She leads with confidence and works hard.  She is consistently great and has a strong mental game.  Wendi is consistently out sized at the net but plays like she’s the tallest person on the court.  Wendi brings a spark to our team, and her work ethic is going to take her great places.  She makes her coaches very proud!”
