My name is Grace Flexter and I have had a passion for volleyball since 6th grade. My goal since 8th grade has been to play volleyball at the collegiate level. I am fast, I can get the ball to the target, I am a leader, respectful, and a great teammate. I am involved in school cheer, school & recreational softball, school & travel volleyball as libero, and previously competed in tumbling at a sub-advanced level. During Junior High, I was a member of my school Beta Club, and most importantly, Valedictorian of my 8th-grade class. During my freshman year of High School, I was a varsity starter as libero and I recorded the 5th most digs in the State of IL as a freshman libero. I had the most digs and serve receives on my team. During travel volleyball in 2020, I played up, on the 17s team as a 15-year-old. Our team was scheduled to play a MEQ tournament, but due to COVID-19, the tournament was canceled. Also, I was selected by America's Team to play Volleyball for Team USA in Spain in July of 2020. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, this trip was postponed to July of 2021 and instead of going to Spain, I will be traveling to Australia.
I believe that I would be a great asset to any college and I desire to be the best I can be as a student and as an athlete, but most of all, I DON'T QUIT!
