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

Spring is finally here! Its been getting warmer every day, and the days are no longer short and grey. It still rains a bit, but most days are sunny--definitely a nice change!
We had last weekend free. Kind of a short break before we start the semi-finals. We have one more game next weekend which determines our ranking (we'll finish either 1, 2, or 3 but it depends on how the others do as well). I think there's a three way tie right now for first.
On Saturday I went to a Viking Ship Museum in the town of Roskilde. Its an old fjord where they found 5 sunken Viking ships from back in the day. They brought them up piece by piece and reassembled them to put on display in the museum. Then they started to build replicas of two of the ships so they could see how they sailed. They used all the same tools and techniques as the original ship builders and it took years to finish. The most impressive one is a long war ship (almost 100 feet long!) that they're planning on sailing from Roskilde to Dublin this summer. Remember these ships are completely open and have no modern equipment. It'll take 65 people and 2 weeks to cross the North Sea. Keep your eyes peeled, because this will probably be in the news later this summer.
Hope all's well. I miss you guys!
