What Is Geneseo Volleyball? A Blog by FY Abigail Moosazadeh

You may be asking yourself this very question. Perhaps also what makes this team work? Who are the wonderful ladies who make up this team? And the number one question, why do they love each other so much? Well luckily for you, I’m here to answer these mind boggling questions for you! Isn’t that just peachy??Screen Shot 2018-02-25 at 12.58.04 PM.png

Geneseo Volleyball isn’t just any other sports program. We’re a culture, a brand if you will, and most of all a family. I’ve only been a part of this family for a few months, however it feels as if it’s been years. We all have a mission, which happens to be the same one… the same goal that many teams also would like to achieve. Collectively as a team, we hope to win a SUNYAC title. We are all selflessly willing to invest all we have toward achieving this goal. With all our heart, mind, body, and soul. We want to expand our culture and connect on levels that not everyone can. We also want to be role models for the Geneseo community and hope to inspire the little girls and even boys who are interested in volleyball, we hope that by watching us play and grow as a team, it will give them a push to join a team of their own.

Not everybody is meant to be a part of a team, nor does everybody get along with all their peers and thankfully for us, we got lucky and are obsessed with each other! Countless hours in the gym, on the bus, in the weight room? Count me in! Dinners and breakfasts together? I’m there! We click— simple as that. The chemistry on and off that beautiful court is like no other, and it certainly helps that we are able work well together to get through the adversity we may face during a game.Screen Shot 2018-02-25 at 12.53.52 PM.png

A team spends so much time together throughout every season so they are bound to learn a thing or two about one another. When it comes to GSUVB, we aren’t shy with what is going on with us. We know practically any and everything about one another, we are always there for each other when someone is down, and we ride that high together when we’re out on the court killin’ it. I can truthfully say that I’ve found lifetime friends and family in Schrader gym. And as for knowing who we are, you’ll just have to come to a game or two to find out ;).


Summer Blog Series: Abigail Moosazadeh

HI THERE! I’m Abi Moosazadeh… the third Abby addition to this amazing team. That being said you can call me Moose to avoid confusion but I prefer Abi :). I’m an incoming freshman to Geneseo and absolutely cannot wait to be up there with all of you in 46 days! I say “up there” because I live in the middle of Long Island in a town called Dix Hills (6 hours away!!). As excited as I am to be at Geneseo, I need to slow down and enjoy what I have here at home.
Just a week or so ago my senior prom and graduation happened. It was a great and crazy emotional two day venture that I wouldn’t trade for the word. It was my last hoorah as a high school student with the people I’ve spent 13 years with and with my boyfriend of over a year. Over those 13 years I became friends with an amazing group of girls and guys. They’ve made me smile and laugh until there were tears in my eyes and pain in my stomach, something I know you all, too, will soon cause me.

My summer is just starting and soon to be ending, so, I’m trying to pack it with all the things I love before I head to Geneseo in August. I’ve been playing pickup games, going to the beach, swimming in the pool, having bonfires, hanging out with my friends and boyfriend, and going jet skiing at Lake Wallenpaupack. I spend most of my weekends in Hampton Bays, paddleboarding with my best friends, swimming with my dog, and watching the sun go down. 

When I’m not hanging with my friends or lounging by the pool I’m working at a baseball park at the concession stand. Even though I don’t make as much money there as I would at another job, I enjoy the little mushy pie cuties who come and say hi to me.
Although I’ll miss all I have here at home, I know that next year with all of you will be amazing. I know that we’ll create amazing memories together and mesh well on the court. Again, I am beyond excited to have you all as my new family. I cannot wait to be at Geneseo in 46 days and KILL IT with you all.
