She attended the Radford High School in Radford, Virginia. There, she was a standout basketball and volleyball player who won state championships. She then chose Virginia Tech to play volleyball. It was there that she met her future husband. In 1986, she tallied 57 aces—sixth-most in a season in Virginia Tech history—and was named to the All-Metro team.

Sonya and Dell founded the Christian Montessori School at Lake Norman in 1995, and she continues to work closely with the school. She didn’t just supply her trio of children with athletic genes. She taught them the right values, and as we’ve seen plenty of times on national television, she unabashedly supports them.
