Personal Statement

Hello,

My name is Alexis Behnke, and I will be going into my sophomore year at St. Philip Catholic Central. My freshman year I was fortunate enough to earn a place on the St. Philip Varsity Volleyball Team. The team had made 10 appearances at the state championship in the past 11 years and won 9 out of ten state championship titles in those years. Highlights of my volleyball season with this team were great. I was a starter on the team as a freshman, and we won our league championship and won districts. I intend to continue with volleyball throughout high school and would love to play in college.

Playing on the St. Philip Varsity Team was a dream of mine since I can remember. I vividly remember going to the State Championships with my family and seeing my cousins out of the court playing as hard as they could. My mother always tells me about how every time I would go to the State Championships that St. Philip participated in I would always say, "Someday, I'm going to be just like those girls." Second grade was when I realized that I wanted more than anything to be on the varsity volleyball team as a freshman. It was in seventh grade that I realized that with hard work and determination that playing volleyball could help me with college. I worked harder than ever my eighth-grade year and received a spot on a 16-year-old team as a 14-year-old. From there I tried out for varsity at St. Philip and achieved my long term goal. Since then I have worked hard all year long to keep up the volleyball skills I learned from the 2016 season, and learn new skills along the way.

Playing in a varsity sport was a great experience that taught me many things. I learned that a well-functioning team is what makes a team win. It is incredibly cliche, but incredibly important to remember that there is no "I" in the team. Many of my coaches over the years have said that I am "coachable". When ever a coach tells me to do something on the court, I do it and give it my all. For example, my freshman year I only played front row and occasionally served. Over the AAU season, I worked with my coach to better my passing so that for the next volleyball school season I could play all around. With sports at St. Philip I have learned how to manage a seven-hour class schedule, but also a full-time sports schedule. This is a very important tool that will help me during my college years. My freshman year I maintained a 3.9 GPA out of a 4.0.

Once the school's volleyball season is finished I play AAU volleyball, and workout constantly. Keeping in pristine physical shape is mandatory, and important in maintaining an athlete's physical stamina and abilities; therefore it is something I focus on all year long. Weightlifting, footwork training, and running are only a few thing that I focus on during the "off" season.

To learn more about my volleyball experiences, schedule, and anything else please feel free to contact me through email.

Thank you for your time,

Alexis Behnke
