Walker was only at North Park for one year
when Pawlikowski was offered the head-coaching
job at her alma mater, Northern Illinois. Walker
opted follow her coach to the Division I level and
joined the Huskies as a walk-on at libero.
After being forced to sit out a year due to NCAA
transfer rules, Walker earned an athletic scholar-
ship and became a decorated player on some very
successful Husky teams.
As a junior, Walker helped the Huskies earn a
berth in the NCAA tournament. And during her se-
nior campaign, she led the team to a Mid-Ameri-
can Conference championship and earned Second
With her college career complete, Walker con-
sidered her options. Playing overseas was an op-
tion, but she determined that there were too many
unknowns. Walker then recalled all of the times
that she and her teammates had gone to play in the
sand at Chicago’s North Beach.
“We had talked early on in career her about con-
tinuing on to the sand, and when that time came it
really was a no-brainer,” said Pawlikowski, who's
now the head coach at Stony Brook University.
“She had great technique and skill for the indoor
game, and her experience at multiple positions
gave her a huge advantage.”
Walker fi rst started playing competitive beach
volleyball while living in Portland in 2013. Though
she was hooked right away, Walker said there was
still an adjustment period to the foreign surface.
“The element of sand makes it a completely dif-
ferent world. Here I was a collegiate volleyball
player and 60-year-old women were moving better
than me,” she said.
Coincidently, Walker’s transition to libero gave
her the skills to excel in the sand.
“Beach volleyball is all about ball-control, ath-
leticism and smarts, which the libero position cer-
tainly requires,” she said.
The following year, Walker moved to northern
California and began training with some of the
best players in the East Bay.
The beach volleyball community — even in the
Bay Area — is not very large, but Walker said that
it is a quality over quantity situation. That everyone
is well acquainted can be a blessing and a curse;
the top players inevitably run into each other in the
latter rounds of local tournaments — making the
competition feel a little too familiar, but connec-
