Tiffany knows what is to feel pride, she knows the feeling of winning high school state championship and a club national title, but this time she is going to experience a whole new level of privilege.

“I’ve always dreamed about what it would be like to be in the Olympics, to be on the international stage and represent my country,” Clark said while getting ready for the trip. “I consider myself to be a very patriotic person. It’s going to be amazing walking on the court with that flag on my chest representing the U.S. I want to find a way to serve my country. This isn’t the military, but it’s pretty cool, too.”- chicagotribune.com
This Amazing journey started at a tryout earlier this year in Minneapolis, and she was one of 20 girls invited back for tryouts at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Co.
In a week Clark found out she made the cut. On Tuesday the team left for Buenos Aires, Argentina, to participate in a few scrimmages, and then it’s on to Peru.
Being the first Benet volleyball player to make the national team, Benet coach Brad Baker called her the best libero he’s ever seen in this area.
“Her intensity and her ability to serve receive, those two things are what separate her,” Baker said. “We’ve had some intense kids, but her competitive nature is a level above. And her ability to serve receive is unbelievable. It’s hard to explain how good she is at that skill.”- chicagotribune.com
