For the first episode in Siefer’s Scoop podcast history, Blaise has a co-host! Sports writer Sam Lipin, a sophomore Feb at Middlebury, joins the podcast to help Blaise interview Lucy Ambach ’23, the first women’s volleyball player to appear on Siefer’s Scoop. Blaise and Sam begin the episode by asking Ambach when she began to play volleyball and if her height had anything to do with it. Next, they chat with Ambach about Middlebury. What made the school stand out? Was it always her first choice? What are some of her favorite memories with the team? Finally, Ambach is asked about her goals for the program, and she’s also challenged to create a 30-second program pitch for prospective Middlebury volleyball players.
