Improve Your Volleyball interviews inspiring UC Irvine volleyball player

Kristin Winkler.


Improve Your Volleyball: What makes you special?


If anything, it would have to be that I am never completely satisfied

with my performance.

Even if I have a great game, I am always thinking about the plays I could

have made better.

I guess I could say that I am always striving for perfection.

 

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


Being a libero, I would say my kneepads. The extra padding is crucial

when we throw ourselves around as much as we do!


Improve Your Volleyball: What pregame habits, rituals, or superstitions do you have to do before every game?


I definitely love to listen to my Ipod. I have a few songs that I have to

listen to before every match that get my blood flowing and heart racing.

I also have to drink coffee before every game, no matter what time it is

at.

 

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


My family, especially my father. They are responsible for making me the

competitor I am today by always challenging me to make myself better.


What did inspiring college volleyball player Kristin Winkler do this week?


After strong defensive performances that marked the UCI single-match

records twice, Kristin Winkler was named the Big West Player of the

Week

 

Kristin was voted to the Comcast/Sheraton Lobo Invitational

All-Tournament team, tied the third-best single-match mark with 31 digs

in the five-game match against host New Mexico

 

She set a new UCI match record with 34 digs in the win against

Portland State, surpassing her previous best of 32 digs recorded in 2010.

 

It is the first time in her career that Winkler has posted 30 or more digs

in the same weekend and with the effort, she climbs to fifth in the UCI

career records with 1,173 digs.
