Sawyer passed away on April 27th, 2022 as a result of a car accident. She loved her teammates beyond what words could describe, and was so close to her family that they all attended almost every one of her tournaments. Over the past couple of days, we have received an outpouring of love, encouragement, and support from the volleyball community all across the United States. So many have asked how they can help and it became apparent that the best way to honor her is by giving others a chance to play the sport that she loved. 💛🏐💛
“She was real. She was genuine. Not afraid of the messiness of life. She was bold. She was beautiful. She was deep. She was wild. She was vulnerable. She was relatable. She loved big, and bigger than her love was her smile. She was the sunshine with a side of hurricane in the very best way.” -Kennedy Smith
Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
