My name is Tristen Gierhart and I've played club volleyball since the beginning of 4th grade, and plan to continue throughout high school and play into college. Currently, I am 5'11" and 150 lbs in 11th grade, and have an approach jump of 9'9". Volleyball has always been something I love to do and calms me. It's my stress reliever and always motivates me to continue to get better. I don't ever miss an opportunity to be involved, whether it is practice, games, helping to coach younger players or get some extra touches with my teammates outside of practice. I am willing to put in the extra effort and give 110% in my work ethic both on and off the court. I take that mental toughness into the classroom as well where I've maintained a 3.66 gpa (3.8 weighted gpa) while taking honors classes and participating in the College Prep Bio Med Tech Program.
