A Senior Sayonara

Nov. 29, 2010

Iowa volleyball fans were able to follow members of the Hawkeye volleyball team throughout the 2010 season via the Iowa Volleyblog. Hawkeye student-athletes shared insight regarding the Hawkeyes’ upcoming matches, road trips and what it’s like being a student-athlete at the University of Iowa. Senior Becky Walters offers her sincere gratitude in the final 2010 volleyblog entry.

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Hi Hawkeyes! I cannot believe tonight is the last time throwing on my Iowa jersey! I could go on forever trying to express my gratitude to everyone who has been a part of this joyful chapter in my life, but I was told to make this brief 🙂

To my Mom-Deb, Dad-Kory, and Brother-Nick: I couldn’t have done any of this without you. You’ve been the first people I come to with struggles and triumph – and I know I can always count on you no matter what. I could write a book and still not explain all of my appreciation. I LOVE YOU!

To my Best Friends- My teammates: I have never been a part of something so special in my life. I cherish every moment I get to spend with all of you and I wouldn’t in a million years pick a different group of girls to spend every waking hour with. You are all so beautiful inside and out – and I can honestly say – I found my lifetime friends!

To the FANS!!! WOW…you guys are the BEST! You have stuck with us through our ups and downs and I cannot thank you enough. Running out of the tunnel for each game to see the thousands of Hawkeye fans cheering us on gives me goosebumps! You truly make us all feel like superstars and I hold a special place in my heart for you!! We couldn’t have made it through the season without you. I’ve said it forever and I’ll say it again…HAWKEYE FANS ARE THE BEST FANS IN THE WORLD!

To Dan, Travis, and Amber…Thank you for fixing my 1,000 aches and pains, and for all of the ibuprofen before matches! You are AMAZING!

Last but not least – to Sharon, Ben, Jason, Angie & Curt: Thank you-Thank you-Thank you for the continuous encouragement through my hard times. You’ve made my last season UNFORGETTABLE! (oh yeah, and thanks for the minimal 20-balls and china drills).


GO HAWKS!!!! Becky #10
