Fox looks to the future


Had Purdue won the national championship this season there would have been some symmetry for Fox. Barr-Reeve once again advanced to the IHSAA volleyball state finals during the 2013 season, and on Nov. 9 the Lady Vikings claimed the school’s first team state championship in any sport. Though Fox was in Columbus, Ohio for a match that night against Ohio State, she was clued in to what was happening with Barr-Reeve.

“I was on the road, and my coach had it hooked up to the TV, and I got to watch the last game. I was so happy for the girls, but mostly happy for Amber (Barr-Reeve coach Amber DeCoursey), because she finally got it,” said Fox. “She’s one of my best friends, even if she was my coach in high school. I’m so happy she finally got it.”

Purdue volleyball took Fox very far indeed last May as the Boilermakers embarked on a 12-day European trip, including visits to some of the continents most famous cities such as Venice, Milan, and Paris.

“We went on trip to Europe last spring, that was life changing experience,” said Fox. “We went to six different countries and played against European teams. They’re almost 30 and they’re still playing.”

With her volleyball career over, Fox, a two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection, is on track to graduate in May with a degree in Organization, Leadership, and Supervision. After graduation, Fox intends to apply to dentistry school, or, if that option doesn’t work out, to pursue a master’s degree in business at Purdue.
