APSU’s Lauren Henderson cool under pressure at US National Volleyball tryout

 

Austin Peay Sports Information

APSU - Austin Peay State University SportsClarksville, TN – Next time you get nervous, just remember how Lauren Henderson handles her nerves.

The 6-0 middle-blocker recently had what, for many, would be among the most nerve-wracking experiences of her life: trying out for the United States Women’s National Volleyball Team. And if nerves were ever a factor, she never let on.

“When I left, I told Ariel (Apolinario) and Coach (Taylor) Mott that there was no need for me to be nervous,” Henderson said. “There’s 247 other girls going that can be nervous for me. When you’re nervous, you play timid and play scared and act like you don’t know what you’re doing. Getting to play with the best, there was no time to be nervous.”
