The Lookout Staff Writer Arianne Olayinka recently had a discussion with volleyball player Olivia Sabec. The freshman from Haslett is an education major at Lansing Community College.

When did you start playing volleyball?
“I started playing when I was in fifth grade.”

Why did you start volleyball?
“I started volleyball because I always loved to watch college teams play. (Also) I was really tall, so I figured it was worth a try.”

What position do you play?
“I am an outside hitter.”

What makes you a great addition to the team?
“I am very positive and I consider myself to be a vocal leader on the court.”

How has volleyball helped you to grow as a person?
“Volleyball has taught me to be confident in everything I do. Being hesitant and not doing things with full effort will never give you the results you want. But, if you’re confident and put in the work, you’ll always come out on top.”

What is your fondest memory so far in your volleyball career?
“Winning districts my sophomore year of high school.”

How do you stay motivated after losses?
“Every game is a learning experience. The next game is always an opportunity to better ourselves.”

Who is your role model and why?
“My role model is my older sister Alexia. She is one of the strongest women I know. She is always so kind to everyone that she meets. She’s (also) my best friend.”

What are your future volleyball plans?
“I am not sure if I am going to continue to play after LCC. But, I love playing volleyball. If I (get) the chance I (will) definitely continue to play.”
