Volleyball

Winston Cho of The Daily Californian has a great read on junior Sarah Cole, her depression, the support of her family, and her revival at Cal.

Cole needed the gap year to revitalize herself, not only athletically but also intellectually. At Davis, she viewed her life as a collection of chores and tasks. Her life there consisted of studying to get the highest grades possible to keep up the impossible standard she had set for herself. She even quit the school volleyball team two weeks into the start of training camp her freshman year at Davis. All of this led to the realization that Davis wasn't for her.

She started to read and study for knowledge's sake, whereas before, she was studying until the break of dawn for the sake of a letter grade. She realized she had a passion for biology, which prompted her to change her major from engineering to integrative biology when she transferred to UC Berkeley in August 2013 after she was recruited for volleyball by coach Rich Feller. Although she didn't get on the court too often during her inaugural season with the Bears, she now knows that she wants volleyball to remain a part of her life for as long as possible.

Cal Football

CalBears.com

With a new academic year, a new website to make the Cal Athletics experience more interactive.

Starting this fall, we will be providing Cal fans with more compelling content, using video, photos and the written word to tell the Cal story. There will be weekly features focusing on the Cal student-athlete - what our Bears are doing in the classroom and community to make an impact. Fans will get to know head coaches and assistants with a series of Q&As. We will check in with former Cal student-athletes to see what is going on with their lives after Berkeley. There will be features on the fans - what Cal Athletics means to them and how they support their favorite sports teams.
