Georgia State Volleyball Player Jocelyn Walden, A Career Review
by: April Chapple

Jocelyn Walden, the lone senior on the Panther squad during the 2009 season, is the sixth Canadian to the play for Georgia State. The biology major played four years of high school volleyball and three years of soccer before deciding to become a Lady Panther.

During preseason her first year, Jocelyn flourished in the victory over Gardner-Webb where she set a season high with 10 kills, five digs and five blocks. A week earlier against the James Madison team, Jocelyn had five kills, five digs and five blocks while that same weekend she was honored as a member of the All-Tournament team at the McAlister's Deli/Seahawk Invitational.

As a sophomore, her more notable preseason playing accomplishments occurred during the team's victory over ETSU where Jocelyn finished the match with ten kills and a .400 hitting percentage. Seven days later, she scored six service aces in the Panthers victory over Texas State. The next day against North Texas, Jocelyn had 12 kills, four assists, four service aces and seven blocks.

Two weeks later, she had a .500 percentage playing against Appalachian State and increased her hitting effectiveness in the next match against Kennesaw State where she had a .528 hitting percentage blasting eight kills and putting up five blocks.

By her junior year Jocelyn had established herself as one of the top serving threats in the Colonial Athletic Association conference. She served an average of .30 aces per set and finished tenth in the conference.

The Panthers started their regular conference season with a five-set victory over Delaware where Jocelyn had eight kills. She followed that with an errorless game against SMU notching four kills out of nine total attacks. Having worked her way up the Georgia State team statistical charts, Jocelyn had the third-most digs on the team with 191. In the blocking category, she finished third with 38 total and was first in serving, having scored a total of 25 aces.

This 2009 season was her final season as a Georgia State volleyball player and she made the best of it, first by committing no errors in the team's match against Navy where she finished with 10 kills and had a .588 hitting percentage. A month later against Mercer, the volleyball player from Canada had 11 kills with only two errors and added seven blocks with nine digs.

Since becoming a Georgia State volleyball player, Jocelyn earned the Colonial Athletic Association Commissioner's Academic award for all four years. As a Panther player she finished with 479 kills, 451 digs, 106 service aces and 52 assists.
