Meet the Athlete: Semarjit Singh


By Matthew Serraty
Opinion Editor

Semarjit Singh is a sophomore at Middlesex County College and is a member of the Blue Colts women’s volleyball team. She attended Piscataway High School and still currently lives in Piscataway. Singh is a returning member of the volleyball team, this being her second season. She is a business administration major and plans to transfer to Rutgers in the fall.

Singh said, “My brother went to Rutgers Newark and played basketball, so I decided why not play a college sport?”

Her brother did not just influence her in playing volleyball; he also influenced her career choice. “What are my parents going to do with two kids in the medical field?” asked Singh.

Singh plans to complete her master’s in finance so that she and her brother can one day open a pharmacy together.

Amber Rauh, it is more of the same. “Honestly I love her to bits. As a person and as a coach she is genuine.”

Singh’s goal for her team is to get one win this season. “If we win one game this season, home or away, coach said we can record her acting crazy and post it on social media.”
