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

I don't know if you've heard it on the news, but there's a little incidence going on in downtown Copenhagen currently, so if you haven't I'll catch you up to speed because its really interesting.
It involves this 'youth house' in the downtown part of Copenhagen called Nørrebro. Apparently it's just a regular piece of property that wasn't being used so these 'alternative' kids took it over about 2 or 3 years ago (maybe 5 years ago, I can't remember) and have been using it as a hangout. They feel like they need a place to express themselves, but more importantly, it just seems like a place to party for free. The government has known about this, but decided to let the kids stay there rent free because, well, the Danish government is very lenient I guess. It seems like most people I've talked to agreed that these kids did have the right to stay there as long as the house wasn't being used.
But the government sold the house to some church or something, and have asked the kids to move out. They gave them a certain amount of time that they had to leave by, but of course, they don't want to leave. So, the police are trying to 'remove' them from the house and a riot's ensued. This has turned into like a week long ordeal, and I don't know when its going to stop. The problem is that young people from other countries are coming here now too just to riot. So far they've just started a few fires and wrecked a school and are throwing rocks and molotov cocktails all over the place.
Anyways, the whole things' been pretty crazy. They called in all the cops in the country to deal with this and it just so happens our setter is one of them. She hasn't been at practice all week, and has to work around the clock some days. Its pretty funny to picture it, actually. Jindra's this little blong Danish girl and she's had to be decked out in riot gear for the past week. She managed to get today off for our game, though, but we lost. Damn.
So that's how things have been going lately. I'm sure you can find more about it on the internet. Hope everythings going well in Colorado!
Until next time,
