Hi! My name is Katie Gropel and I'm a senior at Pleasant Valley High School in Bettendorf, Iowa. I plan to play volleyball and study at a community college for my first two years and then continue to play volleyball and finish studies at another college my last two years. During those four years I would also like to continue in choir and/or jazz choir. I am very optimistic and supportive which allows me to be a team player and a strong teammate. I constantly strive to get better and believe coach feedback is important and necessary to grow. The team always comes first before myself and I hope to make the program I end up committing to be the best it can ever be.
