Freshman libero/defensive specialist Hannah Benjamin (#4) huddles with her teammates during last weekend's 3-1 victory over San Francisco.
Though a rookie to D-I volleyball, freshman libero and defensive specialist Hannah Benjamin is no newcomer to volleyball. With USA Junior National Team training under her belt, Benjamin comes to Stanford with much experience. She also appeared in the Junior Olympics in 2006, 2007 and 2008. Her Encinitas Wave Volleyball and Coast Volleyball club teams gave her a taste of the fast-paced D-I world.
"Not only are the girls hitting the ball harder," Benjamin said, "but you also have to learn to react to things more quickly because every point counts when the competition is always strong." While adjusting to a more intense level of volleyball may be a challenge, Benjamin counts on her close-knit team and supportive coaches to teach her the ins and outs of college ball. "One of the most helpful ways that my coaches have facilitated the transition is by exposing me to the game," Benjamin said. "In our first tournament, all three healthy freshmen played. It forced us to step up to the challenge of a faster-paced game and helped build our confidence." Benjamin's coaches have instilled confidence in her by throwing her into the deep end and she seems to have taken a piece of her teammates' attitudes as well: boldness. "I have learned from our other liberos and defensive specialists to play with no fear," she said. "I look up to all three of these girls and really respect their fearlessness and gumption." Benjamin looks to carry this "No Fear" attitude through her volleyball career at Stanford. Each minute of playing time is a piece of the large impact she hopes to make here. "My goal for this season is to make a difference every time I step on the court," she said. "As a defensive specialist, who only has limited time on the court, making sure to play as hard as I can all the time is very important." And though Benjamin makes an impact on the court, she also makes an impression on her teammates. Literally. This freshman is especially famous among teammates for her gestures during a game of Catch Phrase. "Several girls on the team love the show 'The Office' and they are constantly reciting lines. One of these lines is 'Boom . . . ROASTED!' so we all know the line even if we don't follow 'The Office.' When Alix [Klineman] said the word 'Boom' as a hint, the whole team proceeded to yell 'Roasted!'" Benjamin said of her favorite Catch Phrase moment. Among the many adjustments Benjamin has had to make this year, moving away from her biggest fans definitely ranks as the hardest.
