Sophomore volleyball player Preecy Seever was named D-II KJCCC/Verizon Wireless Player of the Week for week two. Her 102 kills through the team’s first 10 matches ranks her sixth nationally. Seever was a part of last year’s 28-6 squad that ended their season against No.1 ranked Cowley Community College in the Region VI Championship. This was the first season the Lady Cavs hadn’t made the D-II Tournament in eight years. Seever hopes on-court chemistry can eliminate an early exit this season.
Team Goals: I would say that our team strives to be close to one another. Our first goal as a team would be to play as one unit. Last year we had a lot of big talent but we collectively really weren’t in sync on the court. Our team this year really works hard at being a solid group rather than individuals. Our second goal would be to make it to Nationals — this goal however comes with a lot of hard work and discipline so we just got to keep working hard in practices and fight for our rightful spot.
Personal Goals: I would say my personal goal this year on the team is to really be a leader. This is my last year playing for JCCC and I really want the freshman who are playing this year to learn a lot but to also remember to enjoy every moment of Johnson (County). Playing for Juco really has been a fun experience for me and I know that a few of my best memories will be from playing here. Coach Ei really cares for her players and each girl that I have gotten to play with really has made this school feel like a family. I would also like to work hard and try to leave a legacy at Juco by being an All-American but I first and foremost want to work hard at getting our team to Nationals.
Team record: I would say that our record this year so far has been good. We had a slip up last weekend playing in Estherville, Iowa but we have learned from those two losses and are ready to fight.
Team strengths and weaknesses: I think that one of our weaknesses that we are working at is to stay disciplined and to communicate more. Our strengths however are that we are fighters, we all have a passion to want to win and when we step on that court we all have the same mind set, make the other team fear us.
Favorite movies: My favorite movies are definitely the Fast and Furious movies, I love Vin Diesel and his sexy cars.
Favorite artist: I would have to say John Mayer, my favorite song of his is “Daughters”.
Dream job: I hope one day that I will be in law enforcement and eventually work for the DEA and K-9 unit. I have always wanted to be a cop and love dogs, so it feels like a win-win situation for me.
