Chibuzo Aguocha

 

Originally from Houston, TX, Chibuzo Aguocha was a multi-sport athlete, earning varity letters in volleyball, basketball and track & field. She was able to realize her dream of being a NCAA D1 collegiate athlete by receiving a full athletic scholarship for volleyball and track & field from Furman University in Greenville, SC. Chibuzo’s notable achievements include recording 1,200+ kills, top 5 all time in kills per game, being named first-team all-conference for volleyball, triple jump conference champion, triple jump regional qualifier, current school record holder for both long and triple jump, Strength and Conditioning All-American and was named Furman University’s Female Athlete of the Year.

After receiving her BA in Mass Communications, Chibuzo moved to Atlanta, GA for a career in digital marketing and advertising. Her passion for volleyball propelled her to continue playing indoor locally and she quickly was introduced to grass volleyball. She tallied a slew of top finishes in both indoor and grass tournaments along the southeast. Shortly after falling in love with this new doubles format, she made the transition to sand volleyball and has been playing ever since. In 2012, Chibuzo began to pursue her dream of playing professional beach volleyball and played in her first professional tours.

“I love the sport of beach volleyball! I love the challenge it provides both physically and mentally during training and tournament play. To travel across the US, compete against amazing athletes and being a part of the energetic, social atmosphere that the tournaments foster is unlike any sport I know of. It’s AMAZING!”

Today, Chibuzo is dedicated to balancing her career as a digital marketing and advertising professional and a professional beach volleyball player.
