My name is Elysa Smith and I am a junior at Metamora High School in Metamora, IL. I have played school Volleyball for five years (3 yrs. Middle School and 3 yrs. High School). I have also played four years of Club Volleyball with Illini Elite in Bloomington, IL. My club teams have played in Nationals last year and will be playing there again this year. The last two years in club I played on a 16 team and on a 17 team this year. Playing at a higher level has helped me expand my abilities. Every opportunity that I have to be at a school or club practice I attend to help me continually improve. I have attended at least two summer camps each year. One was with Illinois Central College the others were with my Illini Elite club. I have played middle during middle school and my freshman year but have now been playing more right side. This has been great fun learning new positions and I enjoy playing either position. One of my goals is to play volleyball in college. I am working hard not only on the court but in the class room. My initial thought on a major is Business. I would be happy to play at all types of colleges. Going to college is another goal I have; not only do I want to play volleyball, but I want to get a good education and graduate with a degree. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and I look forward to speaking to you soon.
