Bio Bits

In 2005, Manole qualified for the main draw in five of the six qualifiers she played in.

She played volleyball in high school in Highland Park, Minn., then went on to George Washington University, where she was first-team all-conference in 2000 after leading the league in digs. She was twice named the team's Most Inspirational Player as well as the Best Defender in 2000. She received a Bachelor's of Business and Administration-Sports Management.

Manole is from Bucharest, Romania, where she was on the Romanian Junior National Team for three seasons. Her father, Viorel, won a Bronze Medal for Romania in the 1980 Olympics and is the Director of the Romanian Volleyball Federation. During her summer breaks from college, Manole worked with the Federation, translating between Romanian and English among other things.

She played professionally in Belgium for one year after college before moving to California to pursue her beach volleyball career. She lists her greatest accomplishments as making the Romanian Junior National Team, winning the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship, breaking the school record in digs, qualifying for the first time on the AVP in 2004 with her friend Beth Van Fleet, and taking a ninth in 2005 with Diane Pascua.

If you weren't playing professional volleyball, what would you be doing?

I would probably play professional tennis. I would still be in sports somehow. I would be a coach if I didn't play.
