This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features Zana Muno one of the brightest young talents on the AVP and one of the coolest people you’ll ever meet.

In just three seasons on the AVP, Muno has finished third three times – twice with Crissy jones, once with Kelley Kolinske – won a gold medal on the FIVB Tour, and throughout it all, she’s raising chickens! It’s a fun life she’s living, and one we dove into on the podcast. In this episode, we chat about:

  • Muno’s ranch, where she has 11 chickens and built a chicken coop herself
  • How she’s so dang good at defense, and the simple piece of advice she has for defenders
  • Why she is able to look back on a crazy 2021 season, in which she played six events with five different partners, with satisfaction and pride
  • Her career goals, both on the court and for the ranch, which intertwine with one another

And much, much more. Such a fun episode with Zana, who is as fun to hang with as she is to watch dig a million balls on stadium court.
