Something Fun About Sam

  • In Kokoro's inaugural season, Sam competed on our 18-1 team with triplet sisters, Nicole and Jenna. Jenna is currently the assistant volleyball coach at Upper Iowa University and often can create some confusion when she walks into the Kokoro gym.

 

"Sam is a great addition to our coaching staff.  As an athlete, she was required to implement our philosophy; so Sam has the first-hand experience on how we train as well as the goals of our program.  We are looking forward to many seasons with Sam on our coaching staff!" -RT Luczak
