"Emory is AWESOME!  It is the perfect fit for me - I love the players, coaches and trainers, and I would choose Coach McDowell over any other coach out there.  I love her coaching style and how she values character, work ethic and competitveness.  Emory is a top academic institution, and my goal has always been to be able to go to an outstanding academic school where I could play competitive volleyball."
