Athlete Spotlight: Quin Morrison

By Meagan McIntyre '17Staff Writer

With an overall record of 13-3, the Athenas are creating a presence on the volleyball court. Freshman Quin Morrison of Santa Cruz has joined this tiny, but strong, team and has helped contribute to the team’s great success.

Q: How long have you been playing volleyball? A: 10 years.

Q: What’s your favorite part about the team thus far? A: I love how cohesive and close we are. We’re the underdogs this season because we are such a small team but we’re doing really well.

Q: Do you have any weird pre-game rituals? A: I always clean the bottoms of my shoes really intensely so I can move better on the court and dance in the locker room to Regina’s music.

Q: What made you choose Scripps?

A: My cousin went to Scripps and made me obsessed with it when I was little. It’s so pretty it’s like living in a resort, and the food and teachers are awesome.

Q: What’s been the hardest adjustment thus far? A: I’m a right side hitter but I am playing middle this season and that’s been a really big adjustment. It’s always been my least favorite position and I’ve had to learn a lot really quickly but it’s actually starting to grow on me. That and the deathly heat of pre-season and the lack of AC in the gym.

Q: Any guilty pleasures?

A: I watch so many shows: Modern Family, Homeland, Arrested Development. I’ve watched GOT about 5 times through, no joke. I also eat constantly.
