This afternoon, Cael Sanderson and Levi Haines met with the media ahead of the Dec 10 dual against Hofstra.

Toward the end of Cael’s interview, you can see the pain he felt flash across his face when announcing that Shayne Van Ness would miss the remainder of the season to recover from repair of an injury he aggravated a week prior. I’m sure I speak for all of us in wishing Shayne a fast and full recovery.

Levi had some supportive words to share about Shayne, and discussed working the rust off after his own hiatus from mat time.

Author Note: ‘twas my first time acting like a journalist alongside the pros. This time I held my own questions to get a feel for the process; but let me know in the comments if there’s anything you’d like me to ask in the future.

That stunning entrance to Lorenzo has a lot of wow factor, but is definitely a poor location to get good audio. I did my best—especially after realizing I hadn’t turned my mic on, missing Cael’s first question. Next time!

It was also a trip having the all-star cast of the NLWC filter in behind us to warm up with dodgeball. Maddie Nolf arrived w/ her hubby, and was out on the mats playing with everyone else.
