Timothy Christian coach Scott Piersma said Westra’s consistent play at numerous spots on the floor made her an instrumental player for the Trojans.
“Heidi has been unbelievable,” he said. “When she came in as a freshman, we knew she would be good. Then she grew like four inches over the summer. We have asked her to do so much, even setting a bit for us. She can do it all. The shots are unfair because no one is going to cover that shot but she’s going to create it and get that kill. She’s a monster.”
After leading the Trojans in kills with 268 to go with 177 digs, 39 aces and 35 blocks last season, Westra said she endured an adjustment period not sharing the floor with her older sister. Tracy Westra was a captain on last season’s 24-win team, and is now a freshman setter at Hope College in Michigan.
“It’s been a lot different this season,” Heidi Westra said. “It was fun last year playing with my sister.”
