Former Sturgis High School volleyball star Rachel Anderson, who is preparing for her junior season at Western Kentucky University, turned heads the past two years with the Hilltoppers. The program is searching for its fourth straight Conference USA championship, and Anderson’s play in the middle is a major reason why. Anderson was named Conference USA Freshman of the Year in 2015 and she was the league tournament MVP this past season.
Now, she’ll spend a week in Minnesota after being one of 36 selections for the U.S. Collegiate National Team-Minneapolis. The players will train June 22-26 before being broken up into three 12-player squads. Click here for more information on how the U.S. Collegiate National program works.
We sat down with Anderson the day before her departure for Minnesota to talk about her tremendous first two years as a Division I college athlete.
