One of the most common phrases in sports is “Defense wins successful.”
Jewasko has played volleyball since she was in 3rd grade and said that coming to UTSA has been a dream come true.
“I came here and the coaches were great, the players were great. The coaches have believed in me as well as the other players,” Jewasko said. “We have such great chemistry and it has just been me.”
The San Antonio community has also come to watch the Roadrunners on their amazing and dominating run of Southland Conference opponents. Along with the players’ families and fellow UTSA students, local middle school and high school women’s volleyball teams come to watch the Roadrunners compete. The players pose for pictures and even sign autographs for the young girls, and Jewasko knows how important that interaction is to them.
“I think back to when I was that young, and I looked up to those players. Just for them to be with you,” Jewasko said. “It really does make a difference for them and it made a difference for me.”
Jewasko has been a standout player for every match this season, and she does have a chance to eventually become the player with the most career digs in UTSA history.
“It would be a dream come true because of everything I worked for. It would be a really large sense of accomplishment just knowing that hard work does pay off,” Jewasko said.
