GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — A North Carolina A&T State University student-athlete passed away on Sunday at the age of 22, the university announced.

Fatimah Shabazz, an All-MEAC member of the university’s volleyball team, died of complications from an aneurysm.

“We are heartbroken by Fatimah’s passing,” A&T coach Hal Clifton said. “Nothing prepares you for moments like this. Fatimah was an amazing person once you got to know her. She was a fierce competitor on the court but a very sweet person off the court.”

In her career, Shabazz also celebrated two MEAC southern division regular-season championships and the volleyball program’s first-ever win over a Power Five school as the Aggies defeated Virginia Tech, 3-2 on Sept. 18, 2021, the university said.

Shabazz graduated from N.C. A&T with a 3.71-grade point average and a degree in pre-law/liberal studies. She was a first-semester graduate student before passing away.

Funeral arrangements have not been announced.
