Kroll is Coyotes all-time leader

Bookmark and Share

It's hard to miss Tori Kroll on the volleyball court.

"You don't know where I'm coming from, and what I'm going to do, but I just like to go have fun.  So that's what I'm always going to do.."  Kroll says.

"I let her go.  I think that's a natural state and I don't ever want to take away someone's positive emotional state."  Coach Matt Houk says.

Even though she doesn't play the most visible position on it.

"Actually in high school my high school coach used to tell me that I needed to stop smiling sometimes, and I can't do that.  That's just how I play."  Kroll says.

And the senior setter gave Coyote fans plenty of reasons to grin for four years.  

4,639 of them to be precise.  That's the all time USD record for assists.

"You just have to be really humble about the situation.  As you said, the hitters get a lot of the credit for the huge hits, but I'm just happy to see that my hitters are getting all these hits."

"That setter role is like being the quarterback or point guard on the team.  And she's a big leader on this team and she's a difference maker."  Houk says.

And some of Tori's best assists...

"Me and coach are trying to get leaders from all different classes to come up and, kind of teach each girls and come out of their shells to be those voices."  Kroll says.

...Aren't even in the record book.
