Hello, my name is Sadie Reedy and I attend Manchester High School where I am currently enrolled as a Sophomore. I have been blessed with a strong supporting cast to include a younger sister who also loves volleyball, a mother and father who sacrifice to allow me to pursue my passion, and many friends of varying ages and backgrounds. It is important for me to stay active, and I have found that playing volleyball year round for my school and J.O. has provided me that opportunity. My experience of playing volleyball began in the 6th grade, and I have enjoyed being a student of the game since first stepping on the court. While playing all the way around, my primary position through 2017 was a Setter. In the Fall of 2017, my J.O. coach felt that I could best benefit the team by moving to a Defensive Specialist. This transition quickly led to the opportunity to support my J.O. team as a Libero, where I was able to secure the role of Libero starter for my High School Varsity team as a Sophomore in 2018, and subsequently lead my team in multiple statistical categories. I am very grateful to my coaches for their recommendation, and have found my true passion in the position. Through roles as a Setter and Libero, I have had the opportunity to learn how to read both offensive and defensive strategies, along with supporting my team through encouragement, energy, accountability, positive attitude, and leadership.
While volleyball is my passion, I would place it 5th in line of importance to me. God, family, critical relationships, academics, and then volleyball remain my order of importance. Playing volleyball throughout college is a strong desire. Attending a college where academics comes first remains even more important. I am consistently a 3.8-4.0 GPA student who maintains involvement in the Leadership Council, taking great pleasure in the development of team membership and leadership development through extra-curricular activities and acting as a tutor. I am also currently pursuing the National Honor Society which will allow even greater exposure to community support events.
Currently, my college interest lies in the Business Management field. However, I have also found that I have a personal draw toward social work. Success in helping friends and peers through challenging situations has helped me to identify a potential gift and interest in this area, and I have found my interest level continue to grow in this field.
Although somewhat under-sized for volleyball, I am a disciplined hard worker, who turns a deaf ear to those who tell me I can’t do something. I’m looking forward to becoming a valuable and reliable asset and supporter of the college I am blessed to partner with.
