Rachel Spears

Position: Hitter

Year: Senior

Plans for next year: Go to Missouri State in Springfield. I won't play in college, and I want to major in sociology

Season stats: 208 kills, 54 aces, 217 digs, .306 hitting percentage, 137 assisted blocks, 66 solo blocks

Favorite moment this season: On senior night, as our names were called, all of the people in the bleachers stood up and clapped. It was amazing

Pregame ritual: Eat lucky popcorn, get dressed, pray, sometimes sing "Oh, Happy Days" from Sister Act II and then do the Soulja Boy dance

What do you like to do after a win: Collapse because the times I'm happy about a win are the times where we have to play hard to win

Your nickname, and when and how did you get it: Granny. Either coach Hoffman or Jess Abner gave it to me because I move like I'm about 80 years old on the court
