Hi, my name is Reese Czarniecki. I am a middle and opposite hitter for the class of 2022. I am a student at Chesterton High School, in Chesterton, Indiana. I began playing volleyball in 8th grade, and knew it was going to change my life!
I balance many roles; student athlete, volleyball player and equestrian, along with friendships. I have grown up riding horses and I am an active member in the Indiana 4-H Horse and Pony project.
I have a very teachable spirit and give all I can to everything I do. I balance my love of horses, school, church and my passion for excelling in volleyball. This has taught me not only to be a respectful and responsible person, but also how to time manage both school and sports. The past two years, I have also had the opportunity to assist in coaching my younger brother's volleyball team. This has been very rewarding, as it has shown me both the coach's perspective and how important teamwork truly is over individual play.
I am a very versatile player, as I can play both middle and opposite hitter, depending on what my team needs. I am a supportive and encouraging teammate, as well as a hardworking player. I give it my all in practice, games, and outside training!
When thinking about college, my ultimate goal is to attend a college where I can push myself on the court and in the classroom. I want the right college fit for me, and I’d love to compete at the highest level possible. My family and I view athletics similarly to the way we view our lives. Sports and life are both a process which takes hard work, dedication, teamwork, and building of our strengths!
