Bozeman's Libero Leading the Way

Posted: Updated:
"You can't get a set and you can't get a kill without a pass. So I'm kind of like the foundation if I don't get a good pass we won't end the play very well. So I like that it's dependent on me." said junior libero Maggie Green.

Maggie Green plays a key role in Bozeman volleyball's success. Her passes as a libero set up the offense. But it's her passion and tenacity that set her apart from others.

"She's one of the most intense players I've seen in my nine years of coaching so I think that's what makes her successful," said head coach Erica Gustavsen.

"She's really competitive which is a key part of this team she's a leader when we're down she'll say you got this ball pick it up and that helps," said senior middle blocker Madison Studer.

The hitters get all the publicty for their kills, but the libero is the unsung hero. And Maggie makes sure she sets up her teammates for success.

"To get kills you need a good pass you need a good set so it comes from three people to end the play so that's why Maggie does a great job she's a really good leader and she's consistent," said Gustavsen.

"Passers aren't known very well it's more like the kill gets all the attention where as if you get a good pass and you're in a different color jersey and it's going to strike people's attention more," said Green.

While she's a selfless leader on the court, she's giving of her time off it.

"I absolutely love working with kids with special needs that's my passion. I work here in the school I'm a peer tutor. I have cousins that I hang out with that have disabilities so that's my passion and I'm going to pursue that as my career," said Green.
