Hello coaches, ever since a young age I have always played sports year round including baseball and basketball and I have found that I love the game of volleyball the most during my time in highschool. In eighth grade I joined a volleyball club in middle school and I found myself to be a natural at the game. I played for Vermont's only travel team called Vibe for 2 years but unfortunately there wasn't a season this year due to the pandemic. Freshman year of highschool I made the two time state championship varsity team, during that season I learned a ton about the game and realised I was good, we went on to win a third state championship in a row. I also made the team sophomore year and this year, and won both of those seasons to make the win streak 5 years in a row. This year was a challenge for me and I had to step up as a leader because we lost 12 players due to graduation and other commitments, we also had a new coach making me the person with the most experience on this specific team. Throughout the year I helped my coach along with other players with things like good drills to run for certain skills or a helpful tip that I use to improve my game. I can also adapt to new situations very well like the outdoor season we played this year. I was able to adapt my game for the conditions we had to play in this season (including semifinals in a snowstorm) and I earned the first team all state award for Vermont. The last three summers I have attended a VB camp run by Charlie Sullivan.
My family is a big factor in my life and in volleyball. Both my dad and mom coach the JV boys and girls teams at my highschool. My mom has always pushed me in life, especially volleyball because she herself played varsity volleyball in college, my dad also played club volleyball throughout college. My sister gives me a great role model to look up to because she ran cross country and track in college and received an academic all american first team award. She is now in a MD PHD program at Dartmouth. She gives me inspiration to study hard and get good grades because I have seen the doors it has opened for her. I understand that college is about learning and I will always put school first but I also love to spend time outside with people. I enjoy snowmobiling, fishing and golfing with friends to name just a few things. As a student-athlete my goals are to get a degree I love while playing the sport I love during college.
