VYPE 411 with Nimitz's Nathalina Barnes
Nimitz made the playoffs a year ago and look to get back there in 2021 with a mix of vets and youngsters. One of the young stars is sophomore Nathalina Barnes.
VYPE: What was it about volleyball that made you fall in love with it?
BARNES: Volleyball is a sport where you feel the love. It's a competitive sport and I'm a competitive person.
VYPE: How important is chemistry?
BARNES: It's very important. If you don't have a team with a bond, there's no team. When we work together, we're powerful. Despite everything, we're very powerful.
VYPE: Who has been your inspiration through volleyball?
BARNES: I would have to say my sister. She was a defensive specialist/ libero and she was a good one. She showed me that you can do anything no matter what.
VYPE: In 5-10 years from now, what are you doing?
BARNES: I love agriculture, so I want to be a veterinarian.
