During the pandemic, she paid close attention to the first-years and made them feel apart of our family. As a player, Regina was such a joy to coach, and she made huge strides developing her volleyball craft every year. Regina leaves our program with two significant achievements in the Beloit Volleyball Record Book: #4 in most block assists in a season and #4 in best hitting percentage in a season. Finally, Regina had the top GPA on our team the past three years!
