In their latest post on X, formerly Twitter, the Maryland Terps shared the news of Russ’ move to return to the Maryland campus. The no. 88 shirt-wearing hitter “is coming back for another year with the Terps“, according to the tweet. Russ has been among the only four players who played in all 32 matches for the Terps. She also boasts one of the best single-season clips in the program’s history. Understandably, Russ’ return will boost Maryland’s NCAA aspirations some more for the next season.

November has been a particularly good month for Russ with her incredible performances against NCAA opponents Ohio State and Purdue. In 2022, Russ was named to the second All-Big Ten team thanks to her commendable performance. In the 2023 season, Russ racked up a total of 119 blocks- something that has helped the Terps to hold their ground against their foes in almost every match.

One take at a time

Growing up, I didn’t really have an interest in Olympic sports, but it was always something intriguing. As I found the means and the opportunity to explore its world, I found sports like volleyball, and track & field to be something that had tons to offer instead of just scoring through kills and sprinting toward the finish line.
