Dear Prospective Colleges:
My name is Katie Callenberger. I am a Junior at Merritt Island High School. This year I am a third year Varsity Starter. Our team was the 6A State Championship team for indoor in 2018. My team and I finished in the state region quarter finals in 2019. We are also the defending Beach State Champion team. I am a middle blocker and have sometimes played right-side/ opposite.
I have played club volleyball for 5 seasons with Cape Coast Volleyball Club. As of March 2020, our team Cape Coast 16U Titan was ranked 5th in the State. Due to the COVID-19 circumstances, our 2020 club season was cut short. During the time of quarantine, I continued to work hard to maintain my athleticism. Currently, my club's gym has reopened for training and I am happy to be back on court. I also have been working out and weight training off the court.
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. My sisters Gwen and Emily both played volleyball in high school. I was given the opportunity to play with Emily during her last two seasons as a high school volleyball player and I am forever grateful to have that experience, especially winning a State Championship with her.
Right now I am looking to major in chemistry or forensic science.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me.
