It was a long time coming for redshirt sophomore Loren Cory who saw the first action of her UCF career as she played in all three matches this past weekend at the Holiday Inn Select/UCF Classic. Cory impressed in eight total sets as she hit a tremendous .458 en route to picking up 12 kills.
Cory's size, an imposing 6-foot-5, caught the eye of the UCF coaching staff and they offered her a scholarship as a transfer athlete after a season at Camosun College in Victoria, British Columbia. After redshirting in 2011, Cory was finally able to show off that size as well as the attacking ability that the she and the coaching staff knew that she had.
A native of Queensland, Australia, Cory joked that having teammates from Latvia and Luxembourg made her the "least international" of the group and when teammates try and replicate her Aussie accent, they just sound British.
