This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter features Terese Cannon, who is annually one of the world’s most improved players. Initially an indoor player for Georgetown, Cannon transferred to USC, won a handful of National Championships, and has since become one of the top blockers in the USA. A run at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games with Sarah Sponcil was abruptly called off after Sponcil switched to indoor, but Cannon is now back on track with, unexpectedly, Megan Kraft, another left side blocker. We cover all of that, including:

  • What exactly happened between Cannon and Sponcil
  • How Cannon and Kraft, a pair of left-side blockers, came to play together, and the influence of Scott Davenport in that partnership
  • A competitive personality that molds to her partner’s, and why that’s both a good and bad thing
  • Why she doesn’t need the incentive of the Olympic Games to continue pursuing her goal of becoming one of the best players in the world

And a whole lot more.

Such a fun chat with T.
