A-Sun Insider: Stetson's DiGirolamo Wears Leadership Hat Well

Monday, July 22, 2013

When last seen on the sand volleyball court, Katie DiGirolamo was competing with her Stetson Hatters in the A-Sun Championship final.

The Hatters pushed A-Sun Champs UNF to the limit before falling, 3-2, and DiGirolamo split in her matches, 2-2, in the two-day championship.

In 2012-13 DiGirolamo helped the Hatters to a 13-11 overall mark with a 5-3 record in A-Sun play. She teamed with Jordan Dierickx for a 12-8 record playing at the #3, #4 and #5 spots, while also posting a 4-2 record with Savannah Byl at the #2 and #3 spots.

Off the court, DiGirolamo has been impressive as well. She was a selection to the 2013 A-Sun Sand Volleyball Academic All-Conference Team, majoring in Business Administration with a 3.94 cumulative grade point average.

She is also the national representative for the A-Sun Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and serves as the president of the Stetson University SAAC. The SAAC exists to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare and fostering a positive student-athlete image.

In Katie DiGirolamo, the A-Sun couldn't have selected a finer torch bearer.
