Character

Conner is a two-time team captain, in both 2019 and 2020.

“Conner is one of the most intrinsically motivated individuals I’ve coached, both as an athlete and as a student. She knows exactly what she wants, and she puts everything in to accomplishing her goals. The way she lives day to day influences everyone around her and is what their respect for her is built on. Conner is a genuine person and leads from her heart.”
-Head Coach Laura Kuhn

Community

Conner embodies the six Texas A&M core values of Excellence, Integrity, Leadership, Loyalty, Respect and Selfless Service. Conner has volunteered for The Big Event, which is the largest single-day, student-run service project in the country.

She was also able to take part in the Ronald McDonald Happy Wheels Cart event at College Station’s Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, where she pushed carts full of snacks, drinks, and toys throughout the pediatric and neonatal units to lift spirits and give hope to patients. She has served as a missionary to the Dominican Republic alongside her fellow athletes and administrators as part of the Aggies for Haiti mission group. Teaching the game of volleyball and sharing her love for sports has also been a key element of her work, giving residents of the Brookwood Community for adults with disabilities a tour of the Reed Arena volleyball facility, as well as teaching the fundamentals of the game to children through Sports Fest.

Conner has managed a leadership position in the Texas A&M Athletic Department, serving as the Service Ambassador for the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. The organization, with Conner maintaining an officer position, is tasked with overseeing student-athlete welfare on campus, maintaining positive relationships between athletes and faculty, working to unify the campus, and promoting community service events for student-athletes. She has also served as a huddle leader for Texas A&M’s traditions night, which welcomes freshmen and transfer athletes into the fray in Aggieland and introduces them to the wide array of traditions.

Competition

For the entirety of her collegiate volleyball career, Conner has served as Texas A&M’s starting setter, elevating the program to its highest national ranking in program history and best NCAA tournament finish in a decade. She has received multiple weekly honors from the SEC for her work at the setter position and is a two-time selection to the AVCA All-South Region Team.

In 2019, Conner’s play warranted a placement as an AVCA All-America Honorable Mention, as well as a VolleyballMag.com All America Honorable Mention. She ranks fifth all-time in Texas A&M program history in assists and holds the single-season assist record at A&M in the 25-point rally scoring era. Her role as an attacking setter contributes greatly to the A&M offensive unit, placing Conner in the No. 12 position for hitting percentage in program history.

She has amassed 31 career double-doubles and was the only player in the SEC to notch a triple-double in 2019. Conner guided the program to its first NCAA Regional Semifinal since 2009 and saw the Aggies ranked as high as No. 6 in the nation.
