BVT's Bunnewith Commits to St. Rose
Blackstone Valley Tech senior Marissa Bunnewith signed a national letter of intent to play volleyball for the College of St. Rose on NCAA National Signing Day last Wednesday. "I met with a few teams, but I felt a connection with St. Rose," she said. "When I met the girls and the coaches, I could see myself fitting in with that team." The College of St. Rose is located in Albany.
The 6'1" Bunnewith was a standout for Barbara King's Beavers, earning a spot on the Colonial Athletic League All-Star team twice and being recognized as the Most Outstanding Senior of the 2011 team.
"I'm excited for her and proud of her," said King. "I think she will do well, she has a good work ethic and has worked hard to get to this point."
Bunnewith said she made it a goal to play at the Division 2 level, and hopes to earn playing time as soon as possible. "They already sent me my workouts for the summer, so I want to go in conditioned and ready and learn what they have to teach me," she said.
Bunnewith says she plans to major in biology and nutrition at St. Rose. In addition to her accolades on the volleyball court she has also won a number of academic and vocational awards at BVT. King admits she is losing a special player with Bunnewith's graduation.
"She is right at the top in terms of great players I have coached," said King. "She's the tallest player I've ever had and one of the smartest. Having her on the team was like having another coach out on the floor."
Bunnewith will also continue to play for the CMass Juniors team through the first week in May. She credits her experience with that program for much of her acquired knowledge about the game and her fundamental skill, but she says her confidence came from her time at BVT. "In high school I learned perseverance," she said. "Coach King taught me to believe in myself and have confidence in what I could do."
Her coach agrees. "She started playing in the 7th grade and she never had that confidence until she came to BVT," said King. "Her confidence and belief in herself she got from us, I always knew she could do it, it was just a matter of her believing in herself."
