Texas A&M’s Angela Lowak to play professional volleyball

COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

Nearly two years since she suffered a gruesome knee injury that all but ended her collegiate volleyball career, Angela Lowak has signed a contract to play professional volleyball for VC Kanti in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.

The New Braunfels native began the 2015 season as a two-year returning starter and the senior co-captain was leading the team with 3.22 kills per set before she dislocated her left kneecap in the first set at Florida State on Sept. 18, two matches before the start of Southeastern Conference play.

Lowak elected to put off surgery until the end of the season, but due to the injury she could only watch from the bench and cheer on the Aggies as they went on to win the program’s first-ever conference championship.

“When I tell people I’m going to play in Switzerland, everybody gets excited because Switzerland is so beautiful and they say that I’m so lucky,” said Lowak. “I know I am lucky to be going to such a beautiful country, but actually I am just so ready to compete and play volleyball wherever it is, and I plan on playing as long as my body will let me.”

The former Texas A&M outside hitter graduated this May and is scheduled to depart for Switzerland on Aug. 27, two days after the Aggie volleyball team opens its 2017 season.
