Why Division III – Mount student athletes share their love of the game

by

Last week, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) celebrated Division III Week, highlighting and honoring student athletes across the country who participate in collegiate sports at the DIII level. In celebration, members of the MSMC Knights shared their thoughts about why they enjoy being part of a Division III team here at the Mount:

Diamond Umunna (Freshman, Women’s Cross Country)
“Being a DIII athlete is the best way to enjoy college. You have a social life, people on campus look up to you, you get to meet and participate with other non-athletes, and you still have the opportunity to play the sport you love at a high level. Moreover, you graduate with a good degree and you’re extra-ready for the real world – crazy schedules, commitment, competition.

My Volleyball Experience at MSMC

I’ve been playing volleyball since I was in 7th grade and played at the varsity level starting my sophomore year of high school. I flipped between being an Outside Hitter and a Middle Hitter, which is something I still do today. Upon entering my senior year of high school, I was hesitant when deciding whether or not I should try to continue playing in college. Today, I know I made the right decision to play volleyball at the collegiate level. Continue Reading
