Erin Ha

Erin Ha is a sophomore at West Ranch who is a hardworking volleyball player at our school and in outside clubs. Team games such as volleyball are especially impacted by COVID-19 since they require multiple people in close contact to play. However, despite the situation, Erin continues to pursue her career as a volleyball player in a quarantine-friendly way.

 

Q: When and why did you start playing volleyball?

 

A: I started volleyball in 8th grade when my friend wanted to start and asked me to try it with her.

 

Q: What is your favorite part of volleyball?

 

A: My favorite part is the bond you make with your teammates. Having a teammate is a really special relationship, especially on the court because everyone has their own playing styles

 

Q: What position do you play?

 

A: I used to play middle but once everyone else grew taller I changed to the opposite hitter and have been ever since.

 

Q: What do you hope for this year?

 

A: I guess my main wish is to go back to playing which I, unfortunately, don’t think will happen soon because I won’t be going back if COVID-19 is still around.

 

Q: How are you practicing for volleyball during quarantine?

 

A: I’ve been practicing for volleyball by running on the treadmill and getting reps with the ball. But it’s been hard practicing because volleyball is a team sport and you need your teammates to practice.

 

Q: Describe volleyball in one word.

 

A: Volleyball in one word is teamwork.

 

Although Erin’s volleyball career has taken a detour, her effort in the sport enables her to continue playing volleyball.
