SAN ANTONIO — The UTSA volleyball program recently took time away from its normal schedule to lend a helping hand at the Young Women's Leadership Academy.
The Roadrunners spent time talking with students about their journey to become college student-athletes and answered questions throughout the day. Members of the team also instructed the students in the fundamentals of the game they play.
"It was a great opportunity for our players to give back to the community during the holiday season," head coach Laura Neugebauer-Groff said. "We strive to be active members of our community and this was an opportunity to make an impact on several students' lives to both educate and encourage."
The Young Women's Leadership Academy is a collaborative effort between the Foundation for the Education of Young Women and the San Antonio Independent School District. Its mission is to support single-sex, college preparatory, public education in Texas that will give young women in urban schools the academic skills to achieve success in college and in life by thinking critically, leading purposefully and living active, healthy and responsible lives.
