Katherine Whitney, a senior outside hitter for the Rams in 2006, finished school in December and decided to try playing overseas. She was able to get a contract with Holte, a team just outside of Copenhagen Denmark.
The following journal chronicles her experience in Denmark for all of our fans

Sorry it has taken me so long to write another update, but here goes...
I've been here for a little over a month now and I can't believe its been so long! I still can't speak a word of Danish (the pronunciation is really hard!) plus everyone just speaks English to me. But I love the food and the laid back culture.The food is delicious! Typical Danish food consists of mostly meat and potatoes, and not as much fish as you'd expect from being an island. They also eats lots of smorrebrød, an open faced sandwhich made with dark bread, remoulade, and an assortment of meats and cheeses (very good).
Copenhagen is a beautiful city. I can't wait until the weather starts getting nicer--apparently Copenhagen just lights up in the spring and summer. There's lots of parks and outdoor cafes, an amusement park called Tivoli, and boat trips around the canals.
Our team is doing really well. We're on a 5 match winning streak, including beating the former #1 team to take over the top spot. We have another month and a half until the semi-finals and finals and have to stay in the top 4 to compete, so I hope we can pull it off! Holte has been in the finals for the past 19 years, but hasn't won since 2002 or something like that. Here's a link to one of the articles in the local paper, http://www.dagbladetonline.dk/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2007102190181&Profile=1000

When the season is over I'm going to Turkey with one of my teammates for a beach volleyball camp in Alanya. It's a pretty touristy place with white sandy beaches right on the Mediterranean Coast. Two more of my teammates might come as well. I'll be sure to send and update (and lots of pictures) of that!
I hope all is well in Colorado, and I miss you guys!
