Can Lane become an Olympian? Three-time Olympian Holly McPeak thinks so, if not Rio, then by Tokyo in 2020. “Absolutely. She has stood out from the beginning for me. She’s really quick defensively, has really good instincts and is awesome offensively. She can hammer it and has good range. I like her attitude. She wants it, and she doesn’t make excuses for stuff. She’s hungry.”
“I absolutely admired and loved the sport as a kid growing up in Manhattan Beach,” Carico told The Beach Reporter. “If anybody would have asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up while I was in junior high or high school, I would have said a professional beach volleyball player. It blows my mind that this has come true.”
