Zandier focuses on the present, and puts all her energy into being a leader on the girl’s volleyball team.

Even though it is her senior year, Emmy Zandier is looking to the future of Baldwin volleyball and continuing her legacy as a leader for the team.

“A group of the seniors, including myself, had a talk with the coaches about how they could improve for next year,” Zandier said.

Among other topics, the seniors talked to their coaches about creating a consistent starting lineup instead of changing it each game.

As for even further into the future, while Zandier does not plan on a collegiate volleyball career, she hopes to one day be a leader for younger Baldwin players.

“Although I don’t plan on playing after high school, I have thought about coaching for the middle school team,” Zandier said.

Zandier wants to have an impact on younger players just like her middle school coach did with her.

Zandier has been seen as a leader on the team this year, even among other seniors.

“She has leadership in her. She can take charge,” senior Brynn Seaman said. “She’s always there when we need her to be.”

Zandier manages to bring her personality and commitment to the team, often inspiring others with her positive attitude.

“Emmy is so energetic and always optimistic; an overall great person to be around,” Seaman said.

Another teammate, senior Allison Huschak, is also inspired by Zandier’s energy.

“She’s a role model for all of us,” Huschak said, “Emmy is so passionate. It is inspirational.”

For her part, Zandier said the team has made that easy.

“We’re really supportive of each other,” Zandier said. “It makes games and practices much more fun.”

Zandier’s inspiration to play volleyball came from watching her older sister and her cousin.

“I looked up to them whenever I was younger,” Zandier said. “I loved watching them play, which is why I got into volleyball.”

The most memorable moments for Zandier were taking sets from Peters and Seneca Valley, two very good teams.

Zandier has been an important member of the volleyball team, earning Huschak’s respect for her serving skills. 

“She’s very active on the court,” Huschak said. “She does very well as a server on our team.”

Over the years, Zandier developed into the leader and role model she is today.

“When Emmy grows as a person, I grow too. Watching her do well makes me want to be better,” Seaman said.
