After graduating from Arbor View High School in Las Vegas, Erika Kelly came to Snow College to play volleyball.

Kelly is a sophomore right side hitter for the team. “She is one of the hardest workers on the team. She has come so far and has a positive impact on the floor that shows all of her hard work,” Coach Keven John said. Although she did not start a lot last year, she is progressing and is starting as a right side hitter this season.

After graduating from Snow College, she plans to go on a mission. After her mission, Kelly plans to major in business.

“My favorite part about playing volleyball for Snow College is the team,” Kelly said. “She (Kelly) is one of the hardest working girls on the team. She earns everything she gets. She brings a lot of energy and she is a good team player,” teammate and friend Madi Packard said about Kelly. Packard also said, “She is hilarious, a good example and she makes anyone feel like a million bucks.”

Outside of volleyball, Kelly likes to be really social. “I don’t like being in my room, at all… ever,” Kelly said. She is really outgoing and likes to stay active.

Come see Kelly and the volleyball team play, and support the Badgers as they near the end of their season.

Briquelle Caperton is from Clearfield, Utah. She was raised an only child, but has a half brother and sister. This is her first year at Snow. She attended Weber State University last year and transferred to Snow College for, “the college experience” and to “get away from home.” Briquelle’s favorite thing about Snow College is how friendly everyone is! Briquelle will graduate this April with her Associate of Arts Degree. Her plan for the future is to transfer to the University of Utah for their architect program; her dream is to do interior design for residential buildings. Some of Briquelle’s favorite things are: playing sports (mainly volleyball and basketball) drawing, and being in the great outdoors! Briquelle also loves to snow board, so on weekends in the winter time you can find her flying down the snowy slopes! She is also interested in film making, especially sports documentaries. As a first semester member of the Snow Drift Staff, Briquelle expressed that, “I never really liked writing, but have found that writing about things that you are passionate is much better!” She will be covering the spot lights for the volleyball team members. Briquelle is very excited to me a part of the Snow Drift staff!
