LSU Womens Volleyball Player Meghan Mannari

Volleyball Voices interviews LSU womens volleyball player Meghan


Volleyball Voices: What makes you special?


I consider myself more privileged and fortunate than special. Being a

part of this great LSU program has given me the opportunity to play the

game I love with all of these other talented athletes that are my friends

not just teammates. The bond we have formed both on and off the

court is something that I will always remember.


Volleyball Voices: What accessories and/or equipment help you

play your best?


I think if you look at this in a team perspective, we are all accessories

that make each other play better. When each one of us does our part,

we flow and play well together as a whole unit. Not one of us is more

important than the other.

Realizing that we’re wearing purple and gold not only representing

ourselves but LSU motivates us to play for things far greater than


Volleyball Voices: What pregame habits, rituals, or superstitions

do you have to do before every game?


There are many pregame rituals that prepare each and every one of us

for the upcoming match. It all starts with taping our fingers and leads to

us dancing along with our “pregame playlist” in the locker room.

After we talk to the coaches and are set with our gameplan, Madie  

Jones leads us in our “Geaux Tigers” cheer.

The superstitions all end with one last prayer that I stay on my feet and

don’t fall as we run on to the court for warm-ups.

Volleyball Voices: Who or what inspires you to play well in each

volleyball match that you play?


I will say having a brother just 17 months older than me has led to my

competitive nature. As a team when you have a group of competitors

playing together you learn to thrive off of each other. We trust each

other, and you begin to play well because you can't let them down.

We each know our role and do everything we can to leave it all on the

court each and every game. The help from our coaches, our fans, and

our support staff as a whole is what makes you put your heart into the

game and play; it makes you proud to be a Tiger.

Volleyball Quote about LSU junior libero Meghan Mannari

“Meghan and our entire back row continue to be difference makers for

us in matches,” head coach Fran Flory said. “She stepped up and made

some very spectacular plays for us during critical points of both of our

road wins last weekend.

Our back row has been very reliable and is a big reason why we are

where we are at this point in the season.”


Mannari surged up to the No. 3 position in the SEC after recording a

conference-leading 43 digs over the weekend


She notched four or more digs during six of LSU’s nine sets en route to a

4.78 per set ratio


The Frisco, Texas, native also was an astounding 45-for-45 in reception

attempts to run her streak to seven straight matches without an error


In the match against Alabama, Meghan claimed 22 digs, her second-

highest output of her career


She also secured 21 digs, the third-best performance of her career,

during the Tigers 3-2 win against Ole Miss
