Derby’s, Sydney Henning – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Shelter Insurance, Taylor Zeka

By Matt Browning 

Sydney Henning of Derby was chosen as the Shelter Insurance Athlete of the Month for October. Henning was an all-league volleyball selection last year, but unfortunately suffered a season-ending knee injury earlier in the fall.

“Volleyball takes a lot of communication so I was really focused on bringing that for my team,” Henning said. “After I was injured, my main focus was just being there for my team for anything they needed and supporting them the rest of the way.”

Even though Henning cannot experience the same kind of season as her teammates, she valued her time with them when she could.

“I would evaluate my season individually as well really difficult with my injury and having to deal with that,” Henning said. “But this team had really great chemistry together and it was so much fun to play with all of them when I could! I always looked forward to practices and games.”

In Henning’s view, her injury was just a minor setback. She is still looking forward to volleyball being an important part of her future.

“My future plans right now consist of me recovering from my injury,” Henning said. “But I do plan on playing volleyball in college. I’m set on a few college options right now, but haven’t made a final decision yet.”
