In eighth grade I learned that my high school offered volleyball as a fall sport and I pursued it. Freshman year was my first year playing and I quickly caught on. Sophomore year I took my volleyball career much more seriously. I pushed myself harder to jump higher, run faster, fix my weaknesses and learn new attacks as a middle hitter. I decided volleyball was something I'd like to play in college. I played in an off-season club where I continued to make progress with my ability.
I can jump high despite my average height and I have good hang time. I'm able to adjust to situations quickly and I'm aggressive. In my current junior year of high school I play as a starter on Varsity through the whole rotation in all 6 positions and play middle hitter when in the front row. I can run 2's, 3's, slides and quicks(1's). I am also a successful blocker at the net and can transition quickly. It is my dream to play in college and excel as a volleyball player. I only hope to get better as I continue to practice and strengthen myself.
