- Current Team
Veronica Rusich is a 19-year old Italian freshman from Trieste majoring in International Affairs. She has been playing volleyball for 14 years and started when she was five years old because her sister taught her how to play and after, she fell in love with the sport. Rusich joined the JCU volleyball team in the beginning of the Fall 16 semester as a spiker. She received an award for “Best Player” during regionals at the age of 14, and arrived in second place in Italy with her school team in the Italian Championship. After graduating, Rusich would like to work in the International Development field, and also to go back to Costa Rica to visit her friends and host family. She would also love to backpack through Iceland.
