My dream is to play College Volleyball at a respected College/University that will help me fulfill my education goals. I have a strong Christian faith which I believe gives me great leadership qualities along with a very positive attitude towards my coaches, teammates and play. I believe your team is only as good as the worse attitude on the team, so my goal while on the court or the sidelines is to be the biggest cheerleader and supporter of my teammate's.
My Academics have always my number 1 focus in which I always hover around and above a " 4.0 GPA ", I am in all honors programs and have been a member of the "National Honor Society" since my Freshman year and will serve as Vice President next year as a Senior.
I have been playing School and Club Volleyball since I was 12yrs old and before that I was a high level competitive Gymnast from the age of 6yrs old.
I am currently in my Senior 2020-2021 year of High School (2021 graduate) in which I am starting Libero on our schools Varsity team for 3rd year, Also I am starting Libero for my 18yr old National Club team. A quote from my former Varsity Coach Terry Sutter during my Freshman year " Cassidy possesses a natural aggressiveness and ability to perform in the moment that together is actually kind of unnatural". Voted to "All American Team" by NCSAA "National Christian Schools Athletic Association" for the past season of 19/20.
This past Varsity season of my Junior year I helped lead my team at Libero to the State Playoffs for the 1st time since 2007 while playing all of the 105 sets of the season. I also set new single season school records in the following 6 Categories, Aces, Serve %, Ace %, PTs Scored, Digs, Passing % .
