Gopher Volleyball has been a premier program since before Samantha Seliger-Swenson was born. Her fate to be a part of that tradition also seemed to be set by birth. The daughter of a high school volleyball coach in Hopkins, Minn., just west of Minneapolis, Seliger-Swenson was destined to be a great volleyball player, and her long-standing love for the University made her a natural fit as a Gopher. After a lifetime building toward a seemingly inevitable Gopher debut, Seliger-Swenson did not disappoint, earning Big Ten Setter of the Year honors last season as a sophomore and her second All-America accolade.
