The Midwest generally has a reputation of providing a little bit slower moving lifestyle, people being more patient and polite, but we produce some of the best volleyball players in the country anyways! At Team Indiana, we pride ourselves on not only how our athletes perform on the court, but the type of character development they have off the court. Anna Murphy is a shining example of this type of character, and she’s taking her talents to the east coast! She recently committed to play volleyball at Boston College.
It’s a big change to go from Zionsville, IN to Chestnut Hill, MA, but Murphy made her decision on a lot of factors, including sheer happiness.
“I made my college decision based on where I felt like I’d be happiest!” said Murphy. “Boston College has outstanding academics, is in a great city, and has a volleyball program with big goals for that future that I want to be a part of.”
Murphy intends to major in English or Business before applying for law school. On top of all of the academic and athletic work she will put in, she’s just excited to get out there.
“I am most excited to go and experience new things!” she remarked. “After living in Indiana my whole life, getting to move to the east coast is a dream that I can’t wait to explore.”
She knows that there is a lot that goes into the recruiting process, but TI really helped her out. It can be a scary process, but remember that we will help!
“My advice for anybody going through the process is just to look at all your options and pick the school you think would benefit you the most,” she said. “Don’t be scared because there are lots of people to help you along the way!”
We can’t wait to see Anna get out to the east coast and represent #TINation in the ACC Conference! Congratulations, Anna!
