This Quick Set episode of SANDCAST: Beach volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is a flashback to our episode with Karissa Cook and Allie Wheeler, the Snow Dog Desert Queens of Weird.

Cook is awesome, just an amazing person and also an incredibly gifted player. Here, she speaks on her mindset as she headed into the 2019 AVP season, in which she won her first tournament in Austin, and how that mindset paved the way to a winning year.
