Andrea Lopez, Women's Volleyball

Our latest West Hills College Coalinga Student-Athlete Spotlight is sophomore outside hitter Andrea Lopez from Monache High School in Porterville. She is a 4.0 nursing major and she works just as hard on volleyball as she does on her studies. On the court, Andrea matched her career highs for kills (26) and digs (22) against Monterey Peninsula College on Sep 6.

According to head coach Jeff Wanderer, Andrea is a very dedicated and determined person. She comes in early and stays late often. Between school and volleyball, she somehow finds a way to work a part-time job. Says Wanderer: "I just have so, so much respect for her. When she is finished, we’ll definitely miss her. She’s just been such a huge part of us."
