makes my team special is our team chemistry.

Get To Know TCU's Kristen Hester

On and  off the court we are all best friends and that's what really helps 

you trust your teammates when playing. I think that plays a big role in 

helping us be so successful.

Improve Your Volleyball: What accessories and/or equipment help you play your best?

I don't know if there is an accessories or a type of equipment that helps

me play my best, but our coaching staff does an amazing job at making

sure we have everything we could possibly need.

My team can be very superstitious, before each game we listen to a

certain playlist, pray and do the same chant every game.

For myself, I have certain head bands and sports bras that I have to wear

for games.

Improve Your Volleyball: Who or what inspires you to play well in each match that you play in?

There are a lot of stuff that inspires me to play well, of course I want

to play well for my team because I know if I have a good game and I'm

giving it my all my teammates will do the same.

It's my last year and I don't want to end the season with any regrets. 

My older sister, Irene inspires me to make sure I give 100% every 

time I step on the court.
