Catching up with: Ex-Korea spiking stars shining on college courts, classrooms

The following has been updated, 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2.



It just goes to show you, DODDS Pacific student-athletes CAN and DO make the grade at a higher level, as the examples provided by Leanne Quizon, Daegu High Class of 2012, and Nicole Sparks (Osan American 2010), Dan Arnold and Laura Vega (2009), clearly demonstrate.

They helped lead their respective volleyball teams into Korean-American Interscholastic Activities Conference powers, and the girls specifically to Far East Division II tournament glory in their high school years. Now, all four are shining at the NCAA Division II level.

Check out the roster for Mount Olive (N.C.), where you can spot the team photograph and the three women's players’ profiles.

Also, check out the emphasis on student over athlete demonstrated by Sparks and Vega, who’ve earned all-academic team honors in addition to their work on the court.

Arnold has been starring and started for the Trojans all or part of his four college years.

Congratulations to Korea’s Fab Four.
