It has been a difficult season for the Kalamazoo College Women’s Volleyball team, and part of that may be due to the absence of libero Logan Horejsi K’17.
Horejsi is a junior from White Lake, MI. Prior to K she attended Mercy High School where she had an illustrious high school volleyball career. Following two successful seasons at K, Horejsi has been sidelined for the last 15 games this season with a knee injury.
Horejsi has been a crucial part of the volleyball team ever since her first game as a Hornet. She earned Second Team All-MIAA honors in her first season, and led the team in digs and service aces in both her first and second seasons as the team’s libero.
Having been playing volleyball since the fifth grade, one of the key factors in choosing a college for Horejsi was the opportunity to continue playing the sport she loves. She says that along with being able to be a part of the volleyball team at K, having the opportunity to further her education at an institution with as strong of academics as K is very important.
Off the court, Horejsi is majoring in biology and minoring in business. She has intentions of attending medical school after completing her undergraduate degree at K. On top of her academic and athletic workload she also works in the Book Club’s coffee shop, as a barista.
Horejsi participates in K-Crew, a group that helps give tours and talks with prospective students. She also organized the volleyball team’s campus-wide four-on-four volleyball tournament fundraiser in the spring.
The injury has been tough on the team, but also on Horejsi.
“My favorite part of being on the volleyball team is being able to compete with my teammates every day,” Horejsi said.
Luckily, the worst part of her injury is behind her and Horejsi hopes to return to competition in the next couple of weeks. Her goal now is to help the team finish the season strong and continue to get the enjoyment out of volleyball she’s always experienced.
