EV senior attended USA Volleyball development camp
August 14, 2008In the beginning, Justine Simpson's love for volleyball went unrequited. "I've been in love with volleyball from the first time I saw it being played," the East Valley senior laughed. "But it took a long time before I was ever any good at it. In fact, I was pretty bad at first. But I still loved playing and, over time, I got better and better."For Simpson, love means working hard at every opportunity. While some athletes are born gifted, Justine Simpson's gift is a willingness to learn and a desire to work hard. Her talent is the dividend of so many hours of sweat equity – a talent built from the ground up, one drop of sweat at a time.Simpson doesn't like to talk about the long road her love of volleyball has taken.
