Getting to know Rachel Ambroch

Why did you choose Tennessee State?

I felt everyone here is dedicated to having a strong work ethic. I also felt comfortable on my visit when talking with the coaches. The team was very accepting of my presence.

How has your summer been preparing for your first season on the court with the Tigers?

My summer was spent finishing club volleyball with Milwaukee Sting and also working with a personal  trainer. It was tough, but I was able to get through it.

What are you looking forward to most this season?

I am most excited to see what each player has to add to the team and winning out on the court.

What can Tiger fans expect to see from you on the court?

A positive attitude and hard work.

What do you do to get ready for a match?

I like to listen to my iPod, Hip Hop & Rap.  I also like to focus, not talk too much.

What is your favorite volleyball moment of your career up to this point?

The third day of nationals in Florida this past club volleyball year when our game score was 30-29 and we were able to get together and not let anything hit the floor, eventually winning. Most exciting win I have ever been a part of!

What do you enjoy doing outside of volleyball?

Wisconsin is a great place for winter sports like ice fishing and snowmobiling and my family and I enjoy both. I also like watching scary movies and shopping with my friends.

How have you spent your summer?

Going to the beach, Graduation parties, Summerfest (a big Wisconsin festival), concerts, and working out.

What is something unique about yourself that you can tell Tiger fans?

This past school year I was selected to be a part of a peer mentor program that worked with severely handicapped children. I definitely learned to appreciate about what a gifted life God has given me.
