Making the Cut – Hannah Zuchowski
There are over 400,000 female high school volleyball players in the United States. Of those, only 3.9% participate in any level of collegiate volleyball. Home Page Sports had the opportunity to speak with one of these few individuals, Hannah Zuchowski.
In three years at Keystone College Zuchowski has totaled 1,146 kills from her Outside Hitter position, including a school record 26 kills, twice. She has achieved many accolades in her three years, which include: Two-Time AVCA Honorable Mention All-America, AVCA Mid-Atlantic All-Region, First and Second Team All-Conference and she was named CSAC Player of the Week.
Zuchowski stated that thr hardest transition for her was the pre-season workouts. “Pre-season in high school is 2-4 hours (compared to) college. It’s a week and a half of volleyball three times a day,” Zuchowski said. “It’s intense volleyball as well – you’re diving, rolling around, getting dirty, sweaty. It’s hard work.”
Zuchowski’s advice to perspective students was simply to “never give up.”
She shared her recruiting story:
“During the last high school career game Coach Wentz came out of the stands and asked me to come with them to Keystone. Never give up, because you never know who’s watching and even if you did lose like we did – if you try your hardest and you play 100% all the time – then you have nothing to lose.”
