“It’s up there,” Marshall said. “It’s been my craziest year of volleyball.”
On Monday, Marshall began her next chapter as the new Hinsdale Central girls volleyball coach with her first day of summer camp. The former Plainfield North coach and Downers Grove South standout player also is working two other camps after just coaching with the Sports Performance Volleyball Club at the Amateur Athletic Union Junior National Volleyball Championships in Kissimmee, Fla.
For Marshall, Hinsdale Central feels like coming home.
“It’s getting back close to where I’m from and that is an area hotbed of volleyball so it’s a win-win,” Marshall said. “I expect the best [athletes] can give. I am a person that truly believes it’s bigger than a game. We teach life skills through the lens of athletics. It might be time management, work ethic, the ability to work with others.”
