The University of Tennesee Women’s Volleyball team traveled to France and Italy with BIP May 14-25, 2019. Check out this video to catch trip highlights and reflections from the staff and team as they look back upon their experience in Europe.
“The trip to Europe was fantastic for everybody, for the staff, the support staff and the players. From a cultural perspective it was an amazing opportunity for us to go. From a volleyball standpoint we got a lot of out of it. We got to train a little bit longer, we got extra practices, we obviously got extra competition against some really high level teams. I was impressed with the level our team was able to play at.” – Eve Rackham, Head Volleyball Coach
“Europe was incredible. It was great on a team bonding perspective to be that far away from home with our teammates for that period of time, but also just the international volleyball experience. European volleyball is definitely different than American volleyball so it was great to have that different caliber of play to start getting us ready for this upcoming season.” -Alyssa Andreno, 2-MB-SR
“We played a lot of volleyball in Europe. We played 6 matches out of 9 days. It was really good for us to be in the gym that often, especially with the caliber of teams that we played. It helped us prepare for the season.”-Sedona Hansen, 11-S-SR
