Serratore reflects, looks ahead after missing season with injury

first_img Published on December 2, 2014 at 12:41 am Outside hitter Silvi Uattara led Syracuse in kills, attack opportunities and digs this season. She was setter Gosia Wlaszczuk’s go-to hitter and the primary target of opponent’s servers that tried to take her out of play. The Orange lacked another star hitter.Senior outside hitter Nicolette Serratore went down with a broken foot before the season, and SU lost a hitter, defender and a leader.“She’s my other Silvi,” Wlaszczuk said of Serratore’s ability to finish consistently. “That’s what we’re missing, a person to go to. That’s a person to go to in critical moments.“She will never disappoint you.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter sitting out this entire senior season, Serratore will return to the court next season for Syracuse (9-21, 2-16 Atlantic Coast) in her fifth year as she pursues a graduate degree or a second major. She was planning to spend another year in school somewhere, so the injury has made it convenient for her to return to SU. The Orange has a strong incoming class after a very difficult season, and head coach Leonid Yelin said Serratore is the player least likely to lose her starting job.“I learned a lot just about the game, the speed of the game, reading the players but also mentally how everyone affects each other,” Serratore said.Syracuse failed to live up to Yelin’s “huge” expectations for this season, mainly due to injuries. Aside from Serratore, outside hitter Valeriya Shaipova played injured in the beginning of the season before reinjuring her knee on Oct. 12, and sat out the rest of the season. Additionally, a variety of players missed games due to smaller injuries.As a result, Syracuse hit .191 as team for the season, good for 13th out of 15 in the ACC. SU was last in assists and kills and bottom five in the conference in digs, aces and opponent hitting percentage. The Orange expects Serratore, a strong all-around player, to help on all fronts.“Oh my God, a lot, a lot. A lot,” Yelin said when asked how his team missed Serratore. “We lost our ball control and Nico was obviously this kind of hitter who has (the) best ball control on the team.”Yelin talked throughout the season about the team’s struggles to “stay in system,” which starts with ball control and serve receive. Senior Lindsay McCabe called Serratore a “very, very strong defender and serve receiver,” and it’s clear SU could’ve used her defense this season.Without Serratore and Shaipova, opponents could focus their game plans on Uattarra. The hitter routinely faced double and triple blocks when on the attack and frequently had to dig and serve receive as opponents hit at her, trying to take her out of the play.An “other Silvi,” as Wlaszczuk said, would not only give the setter extra options, but also prevent the defense from focusing on one player. When Uattara didn’t play well, the Orange often didn’t score well.“This freshman class, it’s going to give them competition, big time,” Yelin said of next season. “Nobody is safe.”Yelin didn’t want to compare next year’s possibilities to this season because of the inordinate amount of injuries the team faced. Nonetheless, he said the talent level would be higher.Serratore is working her way back from injury, now starting to practice and work on certain skills she’s been cleared for. Yelin thinks she may be able to jump, but doesn’t want to risk it.She’s been working with the team’s three young defensive specialists on improving their serve receive. She participated in limited pregame warm-ups with the team in its last few weeks. Yelin watched her do smaller jumping exercises during practice a few weeks ago.Serratore views her situation not as a setback, but as an opportunity to continue her education and to keep playing volleyball.“It’s just made me really appreciate of everything, all the little things,” Serratore said. “Right now, I’m so excited to be able to play volleyball again and I appreciate the sport so much more.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

USG organizes Mental Health Awareness Month events

first_imgMaya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanThe directors of the Academic Culture Assembly presented their plans for the upcoming Mental Health Awareness Month last night at the Undergraduate Student Government Senate meeting in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center. The MHA Month will run from Oct. 12-Nov. 20.Hannah Nguyen, executive director of ACA, discussed the event’s importance.“This is the first even mental health awareness month at USC,” Nguyen said. “We really felt that mental health was a growing issue on our campus that affects so many students, but there’s such a stigma around it that nobody really talks about it.”Nguyen stressed the importance of recognizing mental health issues at USC. She said that ample research shows that mental illness is more prevalent on college campuses.“[This is] not only because of stress due to midterms and exams and school, but also just the pressures for marginalized students that are first generation or who identify as queer, trans or gender nonconforming,” Nguyen said.Maya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanWhen entering into an environment where they feel unsafe, Nguyen explained, these students have a greater chance of having their mental health adversely impacted.“We really wanted to approach this issue in a nuanced manner to really have these types of conversations around mental health throughout our programming,” Nguyen said.Some of the signature activities in the month-long event include a Student Stories Panel; a Resource Fair, where students can learn about resources both on and off campus that they can access if they are struggling with their mental health; a Counselor Meet & Greet, where students can “mingle and speak to counselors in a casual setting about what they do”; a slam poetry night, where students can “express their experiences” with mental health; and weekly de-stress workshops where “students can unwind during this midterm season.”“We’re having [the de-stress sessions] every Monday at Tommy Trojan, except for one Monday where we will be at McCarthy Quad doing yoga,” Nguyen said. “It’s kind of hard to do yoga on the concrete.”Another event will be a puppy-petting session, when a person from the Disability Students’ Association will talk about the differences between emotional support dogs and therapy dogs.Luis Vidalon-Suzuki, ACA’s assistant director, explained that one of key characteristics of the MHA month is its comprehensive approach to addressing mental health.“We want to emphasize the importance of collaboration with the cultural assemblies because … mental health is not a box. It intersects so much with students’ identities,” Vidalon-Suzuki said. “There isn’t just one narrative behind mental health awareness. There isn’t just one manner to tackle this. There are so many factors involved. We have a holistic approach to mental health awareness.”Nguyen also talked about ongoing work to ensure a more welcoming campus community.“The experiences that marginalized students face have serious implications for their mental health,” Nguyen said. “Efforts to create safer spaces, efforts to prevent sexual assault, efforts to provide gender neutral bathrooms and housing for gender nonconforming students, efforts to fight racial bias and sexism and homophobia on our campus, have everything to do with mental health and need to prioritized.”Another major event in MHA month will be the screening of Silver Linings Playbook on Oct. 15 in McCarthy Quad. The film deals explicitly with mental health issues.“We’re having Sprinkles cupcakes that are fall-themed,” Nguyen said. “We’re gonna have hot cider, hot chocolate and hot tea, all the good stuff. But hopefully, the screening will really provoke discussion about the topic of mental health.”last_img read more

We encourage anyone with experience of the issues to share their views, and participate in this vital inquiry.”Closing its statement, the Committee informs Stakeholder submissions must be submitted by 6 September 2019.last_img read more
