I have been playing volleyball since I was in 7th grade. Back then it was fun and kept me active but until this past high school season I never truly understood what it meant to love the game. My teammates from high school season were very competitive and they each challenged me to be a better player. We had a very successful season and by that I don't mean just the wins. I mean the fact that we were all able to take something from this past season. Whether that was something that will help us later on in life or whether it is something that can be fixed for next season. The wins were just a bonus and were very well earned. This past season has taught me how to be a fighter and how to love the challenge of the game.
I think I would be qualified to be on a college team in the fact that I will always try to do my best. I want my teammates to believe that they can rely on me to hold a strong block during a long rally or to keep the ball off the floor. I have received the "Most Improved" award for two high school seasons in a row and that tells me something. It tells me that my team views me as someone who will never be comfortable with where I am at and will always want to be better. I think that statement would be accurate.
