Beethoven was meant to create breathtaking music. Leonardo Da Vinci was born to paint beautiful works of art. As for Janelle Harmonson, she too was meant to pursue and perfect and art form-volleyball. Harmonson, a senior and a five-year member playing outside attacker for tin? Lady Cougars Volleyball team, could definitely boast an athletic background. "I wanted to play all sports available. Basketball, volleyball, track and Softball. I just wanted to be outside playing anything." There was no way Harmonson could escape being involved with sports. Her grandmother was a coach for a high school football team and her father was awarded a basketball scholarship and played college ball. An admitted tomboy, I larmonson shied away from cooking and sewing classes al her private; school in Long Beach, California, The turning point in her athletic career came when she was in eighth grade. "My family moved to San I Jingo and I was exposed to a lot of different sports. I just did what came natural and did what the coaches told me to do." Just a year later she and her family moved back to Long Beach and she began to hone her craft. "I was back at my private school and as a freshman I was playing on varsity teams. I felt that I wasn't being challenged, so I transferred to Wilson High School and decided that volleyball was what I wanted to play." Each of her four years there the volleyball team went to the state finals. She was also involved in club volleyball, which gave her exposure to different coaches, as well as a chance to be recruited. Through club play she got the chance to play in Europe. Erom this, a new love was born. "I love to see new things. I don't mind going places if that is where I need to go. I have been bitten by the travel bug." she said with a smile. Harmonson landed in 132 Sports I louston mainly because! of thopersistenceofl lead Coach Bill Walton. "Bill would not hit me go. Other coaches called me, someall tin* way from Alaska, but I knew and said to myself, this could be it." Wallon knew a good thing when he saw it and was not going to let her slip out of his hands. "I wasal ii tournanicnl and saw her playing. I noticed that she wasn't signed with anyone. I thought that shewasa junior: when I found out that she was a senior, I wanted to talk to her about playing for Houston." Harmonson had not been signed with any teams because of an ankle injury that had kept her off of the court and in a cast. Since her early days as a Cougar, Harmonson has compiled some impressive statistics. She was only the third player in school history to record over 800 kills and 800 career digs. It didn't lake her long to lead the team in digs this past year. "This is Jan's best start ever," said Walton. "It is ran? to find a player that can play both middle; and outer blocker. Nobody on the team plays better all-around volleyball" Besides her participation in volleyball, she also took 15 hours and volunteered at St. Joseph's Hospital eight hours a week, working with the physical therapy patients.-Heather Ellis Volleyball 133
