Sophomore libero Justine Trevino (Burleson,Texas) recently broke the career record in digs for the Saints. On October 12th, in game 1 versus Jamestown Community College, the Saints last home game of the season, Justine recorded her 588th career dig, making her the all-time leader for the Saints volleyball program in digs.
"Justine reads the hitter very well, this is why she is so successful," says head volleyball coach Rachel Pacholke. "Sometimes she also comes out of nowhere when I think the ball is going to fall. Her hustle and hard work helps us stay in ball games."
The record was previously held by 2006 graduate Whitney Bradley with 587 digs. This record stood for over 10 years. "This is a very big accomplishment for myself," says Trevino. "I never thought my hard work would pay off in this way." Trevino currently has 630 career digs for the Saints which 283 of them have come this season. With the WNYAC tournament this weekend, Trevino has the opportunity to add to these already impressive numbers.
Trevino plans on continuing her education to obtain her Bachelors in Education and continue to play Volleyball. She hopes one day to become a teacher and coach younger athletes in volleyball.
