Hanah Weiss of the Columbia International Rams is the Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC) Volleyball Attacker of the Week. She is one of the key contributors to the Rams 12-0 record this season, the best start in the history of Rams volleyball. Weiss, a junior, transferred to CIU as she followed her mom, Katie, the Rams new head volleyball coach this season.  

The family connection caught the attention of WACH FOX 57 reporter Amanda Poole who visited CIU and found that mom and daughter have quite a bit in common.
