    Ivy League schools do not give athletic scholarships. They will however try to supplement with some sort of academic scholarship. These are still hard to come by and most students on Ivy League athletic teams still have to pay part of their tuition. Just and FYI.

    holly may be a good athlete by lodi standards but obviously not good by division I standards because if she was such a good player and student, her so called stanford gate program .she should of been offered a full ride to such a weak volleyball program as Harvard. Lets face it this is a parent prestige issue.b

    Congratulations on your Academic All American volleyball award! Great job on all your hard work.

    Is Holly's mother on the News-Sentinel Staff? Does "the cost of tuition too great for Jacobus and her family to afford" really mean Harvard wasn't interested in her?

    Jacobus quits and lets coach Krista Brereton and her Lodi Flames volleyball team down last year to chase Harvard and Stanford. Now, she gets neither and disappointedly "settles" for Cal-Berkeley. How ironic that the whole publicized paper chase was just a big waste. Maybe Jacobus will learn the meaning of a new word, "loyalty."
