Another great year! My sophomore year was more challenging, but I learned a lot.
My high school team made it to the quarterfinals of our state tournament. In our final match of the season, a 5-setter against our conference rivals, I got 19 kills with a .514 hitting percentage. For the year, I was the top hitter in the conference and second in the state for our division. At the end of the season, I was selected to the All Conference Team, the All State Tournament Team, and the State All Underclass[wo]men Team.
Club season has been amazing. I started at a new club - Arkansas Juniors Storm NWA - and our team has done really well. Our overall record is 51 wins and only 9 losses in the regular season and qualified to the GJNC. I have played mostly as a right side and have had the opportunity to play all the way around which has allowed me to develop my passing and defense.
It has been my dream since I was a kid to be in the Performing Arts arena. I specifically love musical theater and acting. More recently I also have become interested in pursuing History, probably because of my love of reading and the amazing teachers I have had in the subject. I have also become interested in Anthropology. I would love to be able to go to a school where I can pursue all of my interests in some way.
The challenges of this year have helped me develop my leadership and coping skills along with my volleyball skills. Lots of work ahead and I can’t wait to see where it all leads.
The rule changes have slowed my recruiting process, but I still hope to make visits in the fall and have a decision by the end of the year.
Looking forward to connecting
