    Emily Young

    One of the greatest benefits of being a student-athlete is the ability to have an impact on the lives of young children and the opportunity to serve the greater community. Last weekend, our team partook in two great events: our USC Athletics' SCORE I...

  2. A fun-filled spring break

    Emily Young

    After my first trip to Hawaii for the 2011 NCAA regionals, I knew I had to find a way to get back to Oahu. Luckily, at USC I live with two roommates who are Oahu kama'ainas (locals) who showed me and my other roomies what island life is really about ...

    Emily Young

    Last week, my coach asked me if I would like to miss practice in order to attend a women's conference. Since it was during our practice time, and I really wasn't sure, I politely but hesitantly declined. Luckily, I received another opportunity fro...

  4. Now there's time to be a fan

    Emily Young

    Offseason-itis is a real condition. I'm not talking about slacking off or not having passion for your sport during the offseason. That's called being lazy and unmotivated. USC women's volleyball has been in the gym every day working hard toward our u...

    Emily Young

    "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change." -- Wayne Dyer This week, I've been looking at the world with a new set of eyes. I've been listening with a new set of ears. And I've been thinking with a different...

  6. A tall tale of a great game

    Emily Young

    Once upon a time, there was the greatest volleyball team ever. The year before, they lost to the eventual national champions in the NCAA Elite Eight at Texas but were left with that unshakable feeling that they had more to give and more to prove, so ...

  8. Focusing on one game at a time

    Emily Young

    At USC, we do two things during the NCAA volleyball tournament. We speak in terms of championships, and we take one game at a time. This might sound a little contradictory to some people. How can you talk about the championship if you are taking t...

  9. NCAA volleyball: Catching Fire

    Emily Young

    Everyone knows that new "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" movie is killing it at box offices, but that's not this week's top release or box-office smash for volleyball fans across the country. For them (myself included), it's the NCAA Division I volleyb...

  10. All together for Thanksgiving

    Emily Young

    Beavers, Bears, Bruins, Buffs, Cardinal, Cougars, Ducks, Huskies, Sun Devils, Utes, and Wildcats. While this might sound like a Trojan's worst nightmare, this past weekend I wasn't among rivals. I was surrounded by family: the Pac-12 family. I ha...

  15. Nothing beats being at home

    Emily Young

    I learned a trick from my writing professor this summer: When you don't know how to start a letter, start with "thank you." Similarly, that's how I feel this blog needs to start. Thank you to all my friends and family for coming to our tournament...
