Freshman Haggerty Part of Badgers Depth

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

 The highly anticipated Badgers volleyball season tips off on Friday. The No. 4 Badgers travel to No. 6 Hawaii. Wisconsin is loaded with veteran talent this season, but has a deep bench which is where you can find freshman Molly Haggerty making an impact.

"She's one of those young kids that I said had game.She can do so many different things out there on the court." Said head coach Kelly Sheffield.

The 6-foot-1 inch outside hitter made waves back in her home state of Illinois, winning four state championships with St. Francis High School.

"That's what I love about this program." Said Haggerty "They don't expect anything less than your best."

As a freshman, Haggerty has some of the best talent to look up to, learning from two-time first team All-American Lauren Carlini.

Haggerty said, "just on the court, she tells you how it is and she's just a great leader. She helps you with the littlest things on the court and just makes you a better player overall."T

The senior captain has a lot to say about Haggerty. 
"She's such a competitor. She wants to be the best and she has that mentality of I'm going to do whatever it takes for this team to win. No matter the role she's put in. And I think she's going to be a great leader for this team one day." Said Carlini.
 

The Badgers season open is Friday, August 26 against the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
