Dear Prospective Colleges:
My name is Katie Callenberger. I am a sophomore at Merritt Island High School. This year I am a second year Varsity Starter. Our team is the defending 6A State Championship team for indoor. We are also the defending Beach State Champion team. I am a middle blocker and have sometimes played right-side/ opposite. Our offense is diversified so I do hit out of all the front row positions.
I have played club for 4 seasons. Our last 2019 season we qualified for Nationals in Indianapolis. The upcoming 2020 club season I will play for Cape Coast Volleyball on the 16's Elite team.
My interest in volleyball started with my family. My mom was a college player and now coaches for the club. She is also a USA official. Both my sisters play volleyball. Currently, I play Varsity with my older sister, Emily. She is a Senior this year. I am looking forward to a great season, but mostly I am excited to play one last year with my sister beside me.
College interests for me are in the forensic sciences. I enjoy law enforcement, particularly the way science can solve crimes. I have learned to balance my studies with practice and tournament schedules and feel up to the challenge of playing college ball while maintaining high grades. I am goal oriented, a team player, and driven for success.
Thank you for taking time to learn a little about me.
