Why do you love this sport so much?

¨I love this sport because I love being a part of a team. There are so many life skills that can be learned from being part of a team sport.¨

How much does your team impact you and your success on the court?

¨My whole team is critical to my success. I may run the offense but I am also the middle man. I wouldn’t be able to get good sets to my hitters if it wasn’t for the good passes I receive from my back row. Also, I would have all the assists that I have without all of my talented hitters.¨

Which people help you out the most while on the court?

¨My success depends a lot on my team, and I would not be able to be where I am without every member of my team.¨

How excited will you be if you go to state two years in a row? How much of a chance do you think this year´s team has to go to state again?

¨I would be extremely happy if we could return to state again, especially since it would only be the second time in school history. We are already a record-breaking team and we have a lot of trust in each other so I think our chances are pretty good but it definitely will be a battle.¨

Even though this season has been completely different because of COVID-19, what has been your favorite moment of this season?

¨My favorite moment of the season isn’t necessarily a specific moment. But my favorite part about this season is how close the team has grown and how much confidence we have gained. We have a lot of fun together and that is an important part of our success.¨

What other sports or activities will you be participating in this year?

¨I plan to go out for soccer, and I am involved in Reach SADD and NHS. I also play club volleyball outside of school.¨

What are you planning on doing after high school?

¨After high school I plan to attend college and study pre-chiropractic medicine. I plan on playing volleyball but I am still choosing between a couple of schools so I have not decided what college I will be attending.¨
