My name is Ruby Foster, and I am going into my junior year at Onsted High School, in Onsted Michigan. I've been involved in Student Council for three years as a secretary, and in doing so I have been a part of many blood drives and community service opportunities. I have also been invited to join the National Hispanic Honors Society because I have completed four years of Spanish, maintaining a 4.0 grade average in the class. During High School I have participated in Track and Field, but now my primary focus is volleyball. As a freshman I was the starting middle blocker for our Junior Varsity team. We were very successful last season as we came away with a number of tournament wins. This past High School season, I achieved a position as the back up middle blocker on Varsity. As a team, we ended the season with a 50-5 win/loss record, which broke the previous school record for wins and losses.
Outside of school I have played club volleyball for 7 years. For the past three, I have been a member of the number 1 Glass City Volleyball team, in Toledo Ohio. Last year was very successful as we went 56-6, winning 5 of our 8 tournaments, and ended the season the #1 team in OVR. This season was cut short but we were still able to compete in 4 tournaments, winning two of them and being ranked #131 in the Nation. A highlight reel for this season can be found here https://youtu.be/Jl3TTC6Cfic.
I enjoy being able to help my team as much as I can, and continue to work on becoming a better leader. I am very coachable and always up for new challenges. As for my college aspirations, I would love to further my volleyball career and flourish academically in the medical field.
