For most beach volleyball players in the United States, AVP New Orleans was just the second tournament of the season. Corinne Quiggle is not most beach volleyball players. As she has done for the previous two years, Quiggle has hit the road with her new partner, Sarah Schermerhorn, already competing in tournaments in Qatar, Mexico, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Texas, and Louisiana, flying up the rankings on the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour as well as the AVP.
She has become comfortable with the immense travel required when playing full-time international and domestic, taking a last-second flight from Ostrava to New Orleans -- and still taking a seventh!
On this episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, we chat about:
- How Quiggle and Schermerhorn became a team
- Their huge success in Tlaxcala, Mexico, where they emerged from the qualifier, won pool, then battled with Spain, eventually taking a ninth
- Rising up the Volleyball World rankings, to the point that they're now in Elite 16s
- How to land a sponsor as a beach volleyball player
And, as always, much more.
