St. Luke’s volleyball captain Catalin Hendricks ’23 reached the landmark number of 1,000 career assists on Saturday, Oct. 22, at Greenwich Country Day School, during the Storm’s Fairchester Athletic Association matchup against the Tigers. The Storm went on to win the contest 3-1.
St. Luke’s honored Catalina at the Senior Day Game, which took place at home against Hamden Hall on Saturday, Oct. 29. The Norwalk native was given a commemorative ball to recognize her outstanding achievement.
An assist is awarded anytime a set to a player results in that teammate attacking the ball for a kill. Catalina’s tremendous number of assists is a St. Luke’s School record also.
Head Coach Garret Minyard was thrilled for Catalina, who has contributed so much to the success of the program over the last few years: “One thousand assists is an incredible milestone, especially when you consider Catalina achieved this in just three seasons, due to the loss of a season during the pandemic. She has that innate ability to bring out the best in everyone around her, which goes a long way in the setter position. It’s all about giving up the glory and putting others in the best position to score. One thousand assists is the perfect metric to highlight the true investment Cat has made in her team and this program.”
