“Our program’s biggest theme for 2013 was the commitment to learn, to grow and to pursue mastery relentlessly, and to support others doing the same; Alisha embraced and exemplified those notions,” said USA women’s national team head coach Karch Kiraly “In competition, she played a major role in leading our young group to battle – and to a series of hard-fought wins – against the world’s best. Alisha was a big reason why USA got off to such a strong start in the new Olympic cycle.”
“It’s quite an honor to be named USA Volleyball Indoor Athlete of the Year,” Glass said. “It’s an amazing organization and an amazing group of girls. I want to thank the staff for creating an environment where athletes can truly learn and grow, both on and off the court. I also want to thank my teammates for committing to the process and our team goals; everyone is doing their best to make the team the best that they can be by 2016. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of such a special journey.”
“Wow! I have to say this is unexpected!” Banwarth said. “The amount of hard work that each and every USA athlete puts in every day is unreal. So I’d like to make this a team honor, because without my teammates and coaches challenging me every day to be great, there would have been no improvement. Thank you to Karch and the rest of the USA staff, and of course my teammates for making this year so special! I can’t wait for next summer!”
