I love being part of a team. It is why volleyball is so important in my life. Caring for and being part of a team makes me a better person. I believe teamwork is the most important part of competition, and work hard to be the best teammate I can be. People describe my presence on the court as bright, cheerful and outgoing. I support and encourage others at all times, and strive to bring energy and enthusiasm to the court. My favorite moment from club season was coming back from a 12-point deficit to win the match (29-27, 26-24). I am not afraid of taking risks or making mistakes. I lead by example, always giving my best effort and never showing discouragement. I am relentless and aggressive, and never give up.
I work hard on the court and in the classroom. I have a tenacious work ethic and value honesty, integrity and loyalty. I take pride in my accomplishments, celebrate our team's success, and put the team above my own ego always. I enjoy the responsibility of anchoring our team's defensive system as libero. What I love most about our season is how well my team gets along and functions together, and my role in bringing us together and helping us to be successful.
I am excited for my future collegiate academics and athletics. I would appreciate the opportunity to compete for you. Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely, Alli Hagness
