Adjectives, take your pick. Triple Olympic champion Kerri Walsh Jennings went with “rad.”

Autumn Finney, a Decatur (Texas) High School senior outside hitter, turned in a viral save by leaping over a teammate, her back to the net, and stabbing the ball more than 30 feet to get it to the other side.

Decatur later won the point.

Walsh Jennings may be known for her beach prowess, but she made her first Olympic team on the indoor courts in Sydney in 2000.
